91 is normal: 91 is a normal rate. Anger is one of many things that will increase your heart rate. Check your heart rate when you've been sitting quietly, comfortably, calmly for 10 minutes. Under those conditions, it would be more likely to slow down. A healthy heart is able to respond to your needs with incr rate.
