I have an HR question too. When I first started working out again, I noticed that my resting HR was 90-100ish, but when I worked out it occasionally got crazy high, more than 220. But I've been working out regularly for the past 10 years or so and now my resting HR is 60ish and even when I'm completely dripping sweat and pushing the workout I never seem to get above 135-140. Normally this is only an issue on the machines at the gym that have workout programs where there is a target HR, so they just keep speeding up and speeding up, and my HR isn't there yet. Should I lie about my age? I'm female, age 43, roughly 165lbs. And thank you for sharing your story, your positivity is a force to be reckoned with. I used a hand-cycle stationary bike during PT on my shoulder, it helped a lot.
