This is kind of cool-I thought it was interesting to post here because how we would look at some of this-ie: he has permanent kidney damage from chemo; his resting heart rate is 32 (imagine doing vitals, not knowing he's an athlete!),just knid of neat in an A&P kind of way

Is he on dialysis?
As far as I know, he is not-pretty amazing isn't it?

The Doc doing my physicals before I shipped to the States asked me what I was on - I told him nothing more than cycling and swimming. No gym neither
It's upto 65 now I quit smoking but I need to get back to my exercise program.:stone
Same as me! 58 and now 65. I used to run 10k/day and also run around after 5 small kids, but now they're grown/growing up, and I spend more time watching TV. Not a good thing!

For about 2 weeks after I had my baby, my resting HR was 43! It would rise to about 55-60 with exertion, but would quickly drop again. It was in the 90's resting while I was pregnant and is usually around 70 when I'm not pregnant. I'm not an athlete.
43. Go figure. Must be some of that weird postpartum fluid-shifting. Asymptommatic too.
My dh rides bikes also. He has always had an athletic heart rate. Resting is about 48-50. He is not on the level of Lance, but as a man in mid 30s, he aint doing too badly. And he just finished the STP (Seattle to Portland) last weekend. I am pretty dang proud of him. Last year, this time, he had not trained even at all. Some serious accomplishment for only 9 months time.
My dad always had Bradycardia..........I got it too. Usually mine is around 50-55 and even after power walking 1 mile, it rarely goes above 100. I have problems with my BP being low too. During one of my knee surgeries, I was awakened during surgery (which scared the -you-know-what out of me) and noted that my BP was 69/40........doc asked how I felt and I said fine.....next thing I remember I was waking up again, surgery complete.
Due to stress at work and recovery from extensive surgery, I have had to deal with some hypertension.
I feel like I'm on a roller-coaster sometimes. I do admire Lance and his dedication. I do hope that he wins this last race.........I think he will.
He is an inspiration to many, many people!! :balloons:
I remember my MedSurg teacher talking about the low HR in well conditioned athletes. Wasn't all that new, though....my friend at works' stepfather runs about 45-50. He was a runner.
