How do you FEEL?: Individual heart rates vary tremendously and there's almost no science here, though there's a great deal of superstition. How is your blood pressure? I trust you're not taking a medicine as tricky as verapamil to treat a number. Since you're exercising, and I take it have normal exercise tolerance without being interrupted by shortness of breath, I'd urge you to be thankful for good health.
