Pretty good heart rate. The pressures I'm not sure of.

I'm not sure, but I think ideal blood pressure is 120/70.

That's good BP and the heart rate is normal as well.

I'm a freak. My resting heart rate is something like 35. BP's 120/80 though.

35!!!? That's a heart beat roughly every 1.7 seconds. How often do you pass out in a normal work week? :D

Whoa, what just happened?

Actually, I just took my pulse. I guess it's now closer to 45. Getting old and flabby.

45 I can believe. 35 ... :shake: That's reserved for old people knocking on deaths door.

BTW, welcome to the old and flabby club. :p

I used to be a rather serious cyclist (200+ miles a week at 20 mph average). That, and I have a naturally low heart rate by genetics, same as Dad.

Damn, that's a lot of miles at a good clip. Out of curiosity, and you obviously don't have to answer me but, how old are you?

The first one to make some off the cuff remark about the age question being a ghey pickup line gets beat within an inch of their life. :p

Mid-30s.

I remember my mid 30s. *sigh*

All that cycling you did most likely increased your heart muscle and aided in your ability to process oxygen in the blood stream, thus lowering your heart rate.

Did you give up cycling?

No. I still ride whenever I can. 75 miles is a good week, and I average around 17 mph now.

Laz,

Great numbers, but did I miss something, did you ever find the cause of the lightheadness (besides your liberal leanings;) ). Hope all is resolved.

Bianchi. Yes, I've tried a mountian bike and hated it immediately. I've been riding road bikes since I was 6 (Dad was semi-pro) so that's not much of a surprise.

112/72 when I gave blood a few days ago. I was a bit nervous which probably increased the heart rate a tad.

Hey Donger, your exactly the guy I need to talk to. I have started cycling in my free time, usually just 30-40 miles/week, I may try to work myself up on that this summer.

When I moved to Des Moines last month, I immediately noticed that this area has bike trails every-freaking-where. The state has a bike trail budget > $2 Mill and the bike paths are heavily used, so I figured what the hell, I'll join the crowd and get a little more serious.

Problem is, I have a beat-up Mountain bike thats great for the cruddy roads and paths I was used to in Kansas, but I feel so slow on these well-kept roads in Iowa. What should I buy? I can afford a fairly decent bike, but I'm not going to go crazy with an expensive professional bike/gear either. What should I expect to spend, and what should I look for in name brands, bike specs, etc?

Never give up cycling. I have always cycled. Five years ago I got serious. I started spin classes. Drop my heart rate from the low 80s to a 60 last week during a check up. RAGBRAI in two weeks. Party on.
