    60 good .
    Last year I had a medical (job requirement) and was so relaxed on the couch my RHR was down to 45 . The ECG machine print off said I was abnormal . Dr said , not uncommon in people that do a fair amount of exercise . I think ? anything bellow 75 OK , but it's related to blood pessure , age .......

    First thing in the morning it's normally 38ish. It's 42 now at my desk at work.

    My max is also quite low. I can't get it above about 175.

    Re: Resting HR

    Your only true resting heart rate is just after waking in the morning, averaged over a week. 34 for me.
    Mildly interesting: if it is elevated by between 5 and 10 (not that anyone in their right mind is going to measure it every morning) it can be a pre-curser to an illness, or a sign of overtraining.

    My garmin arrived today so i'll try that tomorrow.
    Although, it struggled getting the HRM on so i reckon it may rise a tad.
