- Resting heart rates
Haven't taken a resting one in a while, but hit 198 according to the garmin at the weekend.
When I had my knee OP, Id been doing a lot of low impact cardio stuff (swimming mainly) and when I came round from the drugs I could concentrate on my breething and make the ECG machine do the beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeepppppppppppppppp and scare the nurses :-pPosted 7 years agoaracerSubscriber
Resting heart rate means nothing – my resting HR (52) is the same now that I'm really quite unfit as it was 10 years ago when I was really very fit…
I'd agree to some extent – mine was still under 50 when I was really unfit (though my unfit isn't necessarily the same as anybody else's). I am seeing a bit of variation with fitness though.Posted 7 years agooldgitMember
Between 125 – 165 on the road, about 180 max.
Never worn a HRM during a road race.
Probably went off the board during a Hill climb TT as I nearly lost control of whizz way.
Though strangely during hospital tests earlier this year the most they could get out of me on the treadmill was 96.
During 1985 I reached my lowest recorded resting of 68, that was when you had to have a full on medical to compete in a full IronmanPosted 7 years ago
