Question by David: What is wrong with my resting heart rate?
I’m a 17 year old, healthy teenager, who loves to run and exercise.
I’m in track, and I run every single day. My personal best for the mile race is 4:50.
I recently figured out that my resting heart rate (RHR) is 80. How could this be? I eat the right food and get enough sleep. Why do I have such a high RHR? Is it my genetics?
Suggestion by Chris
Everyones different, 60-80ish bpm is considered and average rhr. But someone could be 40 and someone else of the exact same fitness could be 90.
