Uh-huh. The other half of the equation is equally or perhaps even more important.

I've had mine down to below 50 before. Now I imagine it's north of 60. I did however train 7 times last week in what will probably be a unsuccessful attempt to do a half iron in September which I am calling Man vs Sweep Bus.

No idea where mine is these days. When I first started running decent distances consistently I went through a phase of going dizzy every time I stood up; I asked the doctor about it and he reckoned it was my body adjusting to the change in my resting heart rate. I haven't done any kind of endurance training for ages now though, I should probably check to see where my RHR is now.

All those smart watches seem like a scam to me but you lot like them so who am I to tell you that  they are bullsh!t.

No they're not. I do this thing where I sit there, hold my breath and watch my heart rate increase on my smart band. See if you can beat 120bpm. Ace game.

Mine is about 70, not great, but I don't think it's too bad ..... Is it? Another worry

Assuming you're around mid-late 40s like many of us, it's pretty normal. Could be better but could be loads worse.

I'm 48 in may, so probably more late than mid, so it has been confirmed that I am going to live nearly forever.

If it's any consolation to anyone, when I got my lung age checked a few years ago, it was 74. Also affects my resting heart rate and recovery after exercise. Still, considering I nearly died fifteen years ago, I'm happy enough!

Er, no. Why would that be any consolation to anyone?

I'm into week 2 of my 12 week half iron program. I am tired. I've only got 10 weeks so I've lopped out the 2 trickiest week. @Chicago I am also doing loads of other stuff wrong in my approach.
