    I wasn't referring to that. I'm just not sure if the 28bpm you referenced is a natural resting heart rate, so it's not a good reference point for people who aren't doped up.

    Eddy Merckx had recorded 32 in the 1970s, before they had any sophisticated cardio drugs.

    So yeah, I'd say 32 is fair.

    Well, so far the trend has been to go down 7 bpm in... what, like 30 minutes? If the trend continues as a linear function of time, I'll be down to zero in about 227 minutes.

    But then again, aren't we all dying?

    I always have a high pulse rate considering my fitness level (I was at 68), but I also tend to not be allowed to donate blood because my blood pressure is always so low.

    I've wondered if the two are connected but it's one of those things I'm too lazy to investigate thoroughly.

    Usually, yeah. There's a relationship between blood volume/artery constriction/heart rate in there somehow; if your BP is too low then it usually means your arteries aren't constricted appropriately enough for the volume of blood in your body, so blood doesn't rush as far with each beat, thus you need more beats to take up the slack, or something like that. That's how I've understood it.
    Could also be dehydration, too (causing low blood volume). Or most likely it's just genetics. You're pretty athletic, right? I'm guessing your cardiovascular system's well adapted to handling the intense workloads, so that would factor into everything.

    I'm always in the 70's or 80's at minimum, maybe upper 60's on a really good day hours after exercising. I'm in moderate shape but my weight influences BP/heart rate heavily.
