    My resting heart rate is in the high 60's. Did once get it down to 61 but as soon as I looked at the monitor- it went back up to 68. OK- I've had a bypass. When the Angina attack hit- The ambulance staff were worried that I had a heart rate as low as 45. and on went the sirens and get me to ITU as soon as possible- I stayed in that for 8 hours till the HR got back up to 60.

    Heart rate will vary fronm person to person, and those of us with a higher heart rate will not have a problem as long as the pressure is within bounds and it is normal for you.

    It's okay. Being 50 is not essential. But we do require that eventually you will turn 50. If you have not turned 50 and have no intentions of eventually turning 50 then we must ask you to leave.

    I will be 57 in about a month. My sitting HR varies from about 37 to 44, depending on the time of day. Yes, it freaks doctors out.

    I also sometimes have atrial fibrillation, although I haven't had an episode for 8 or 9 months. The episodes I have usually start at night and end in the morning. The docs have never restricted my exercise, but if I have a sleepless night due to afib, I don't do much.

    Before I figured out how to deal with the afib, a doctor stuck me in the hospital with it. They give you meds to slow your HR. The afib stopped, but they continued the intravenous meds. My HR kept going down to around 30, which sets off all sorts of alarms in a cardiac unit. Once I convinced them to stop the IV, my rate was still only in the high 30's, and a nurse told me I needed a pace maker.

    Today, I rode a little over 30 miles at an average of 15.2 mph, with an average HR of 108. I think my heart is okay.

    45 here. Never bothered to check it before. I am certain it has improved since I have been back into cycling so much.

    Already replied that I am up in the high 60's but on my coffee break this morning after around 20 miles- I started at a rate of 105- This very quickly dropped to 80 and eventually to 75. Back home and I was shatterred so lay on the settee resting my eyes and the alarm on the Monitor went off within 2 minutes. I hadn't missed any of the F1 racing. The alarm is set to 65. It did drop to 61 after a while so I am more pleased that my recovery time to get to low resting rate was only 10 minutes after finishing the ride. Why it didn't do it at the coffee braek I don't know. Must have been all the young girls that were on the table next to me.
