Due to an incredible training regimen when I was younger, my resting heartrate has always been between 50-55. Last July I discovered I needed two stents for a 95% clogged artery. Even after a lifetime of fitness, it takes very little time of "non-fitness," poor diet, and stress to cause problems. That's why consistency is key. Thanks, Julia, for the constant reminders of how important fitness and taking care of ourselves is as we age.
