The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

In P.T. school we learned that 72-80 is average. Mine tends to be between 60 and 70. As was mentioned, the better trained athletes tend to have lower heart rates. Maybe you're a long distance runner but you just don't know it yet!
Wherever you go, there you are!

"For an adult, a normal resting heart rate ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute (bpm). For a well-trained athlete, a normal resting heart rate may be as low as 40 to 60 bpm. In healthy adults, a lower heart rate at rest generally implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness." mayoclinic.com
Although it does say to consult your doctor if it's consistently above 100 or below 60.
Make every day count and live purposefully, live energetically, live completely.
