My pulse rate has always been high.. as in, 80-90 for my resting heart rate. My blood pressure is always normal to low, and my cholesterol is lower than normal, as well. Everyone’s always like, omg you use so much salt, blah blah blah! And those are my responses.. my shit’s low, go away! BUT my pulse was always on the high side.
The other day.. just on a whim, (when I was sitting outside with the puppies, actually! and feeling all lethargic..) I decided to take my pulse. It was fucking 68. It’s never that low, not even when I’m sleeping, drunk or whatever. It doesn’t go that low! I was shocked and excited.
I took it again about an hour later, and it was 66. W.T.F. This never happens! I did little excited dance in my head, posted about it on FB and ran off (not literally.. please) to CrossFit.
One friend commented.. “I think that officially makes you an athlete. :)” EEEEK! WHAT?! ME? No way…. I am not an athlete.. I just lift heavy things really well!! And run a mile sometimes. Sigh.. this is the kind of stuff that makes me feel like it’s all coming together.
