RHR: Dead or Embalmed?

Surprised, and trying not to laugh.

Surprised, and trying not to laugh.

 

<—-  Yeah, I was just as surprised.

Trying to learn more about heart rate zones in fitness for maximum fat burning, and realized I needed to take my RHR (Resting Heart Rate) – so, I’ve taken it a couple times in a couple different ways, and it comes to pretty much the same each time – 56.

That’s 56.  FIFTY SIX.

Now, I didn’t think much of that until I went here, and read that this pretty much makes me an “elite athlete.”  Um.

So, either I’m more fit than I thought from working out sporadically over the last few years, or during the past decade of drinking, I’ve gone and embalmed myself.

And I’m really not sure which of the two scenarios is more likely.
