Hi there, after sitting on the shelf for a year * I finally got round too using my Garmin's hrm strap. Sat at my desk Sat afternoon the lowest rate I saw was 47.
Put it on again this morning when waking up and generally the low point was 43 but at one point it did dip down lower for about 30secs troughing at 39.
So my question is: what should I use as my resting heart rate - 43, 39 or somewhere in between?
Thanks in advance ... Simon,
PS Went on a long run (15miles) yesterday and heart rate briefly reached 183 as I set off but calmed down soon enough, although still reached 178 in second mile it averaged 145 for the run with peaks of around 155-160 up hill and troughs of around 130-135 for downhill. aIn mile 11 I sprinted 100yds or so to push it up and it reached 174.
* the hrm band not me!
