From the book, "Younger Next Year."
the speed with which your heart rate drops in the sixty seconds after you've gone from peak exercise to a walk
To me this means that your recovery should begin at the same time that the cool down begins. As someone has already noted, the higher the recovery rate, the better.
You might want to check out this book. It was a good, quick read!
