I went to a pharmacy to buy cream for the bruise that I sustained during last weeks paintball training. Got this cream named aobruzzy gel. Since I was at the pharmacy, I requested tocheck my blood pressure and this is the result.
Systolic 133 mmHg
The result shows that I am in the prehypertension category. Refer HERE.
But what surprise me is my heart beat. The instrument recorded my heart beat as 58 beat per minute and it was at 9.00 pm,which means I have been moving around but still the heartbeat is low. The last time when I was really active performing my coaching in track and field, cycle for 6 km everyday and swimming every wednesday, my heart beat was 55 bpm.
Before playing paintball my resting heart rate was between 65 - 70 bpm. I now wonder whether my paintball training did lower my heartbeat or something else. A low heartbeat means that the heart do not have to perform much work to pump blood oxygenated to all parts of the body.
