Usually. Resting heart rate between 50 and 75 is considered healthy.

Generally, your resting heart rate will fall between 60 - 90 bpm, but resting rates slightly faster/slower than 50-100 bpm may still be considered normal, especially in the absence of other symptoms, like fatigue, dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain, or passing out spells.

Hi. Healthy pulse for normal healthy people is 50's to low 80's at rest. It's important to make sure it's assessed at rest. Pulse increases with activity, and that's normal. While medical textbooks say a normal resting pulse is 60-100, that's not correct. No healthy person has a resting pulse in the high 80's or 90's. Peace and good health.

Depends on a few factors - age, fitness level medications. 66 yr old woman in average shape I would say around 70 is normal. It does vary though!
