When I first started plodding, I had a resting heart rate of 95. I was surprised to find in the hospital the other day that my resting heart rate is now 70. I consider this an improvement, it shows I'm definately fitter than I used to be. I want to know if there is a set figure or range for a healthy resting heart rate. I plod 2 -3 miles, 3 times a week.
