Do you know what your heart rate is?

The average resting heart rate is 72. I have been checking mine since I have this fitness device. Sometimes it is 72 but I usually have to sit very still It usually runs a little bit higher than that..ocassionally it is lower in the 60's. I just checked it as I was writing this discussion. It is 72 on the nose. Athletes have lower heart rates and if you are extremely unfit no doubt your heart rate would be higher. Have you ever checked your heart rate at rest or during exercise?

I have just checked mine and it's 108. The COPD and meds make it higher.

You should check it sometime for fun. Also, to increase your fitness it helps to set a target heart rate.

@august18 if you don't have a device that measures it you can put two fingers to your carotid artery and measure in 15 second intervals.

Yes, that is a bit high. Mine will get higher if I am exercising or feeling anxious.

@snowy22315 There are times when it's good, if boring, to be 'normal'.

I don't think it is age so much but your level of conditioning.

Mine runs high, normally in the 80s but sometimes in the 90s. It's not unusual for it to go over 100 if I am active. Average depends on the person, I think. While I have some health challenges, my doctor isn't concerned unless it's consistently high.

I do not know what mine is, but I do know it would be too high. I race around a bit too much when doing things. When my husband trained for marathons, his heart rate was really low.

Yes, athletes have lower heart rates..and those who are well conditioned do too.
