How is your blood pressure?

When I eat junk for couple days, pressure can go up to 124-126mm, then I eat right and pressure goes to about 115-118mm in a day or 2.

If thats for me, its seasonal, but something in the range of 8-14 hrs a week. The mileage is pretty meaningless. Im 66.

At 83 years old, it varies from 110 to 120 over about 75 to 80. That lower number is important also.

Super! My parents 85. How many miles do you ride/week? How do you feel? What do you eat? I hope to get instructions for my parents. Ed Whitlock ran his last marathon at age of 85, Harriett Thompson- 92.

At 71, my blood pressure is probably fine. Two physical exams in the last 10 years, and it was good both times, I was told. Don't know the numbers.

Blood pressure is #1 health condition criteria, I check about 3-5 times/week.
