50-55, age 39.

When I rode my bike a lot more I was in the mid to high 40's.

For about 6 months, I was on a medication that made my RHR in the low 70's. So medication can definitely alter your real base.

But I've found the most important thing is to just be active enough to break a sweat each day. Some days are longer, some days are shorter. And be more mindful of how fast your heart rate falls to recover, than what your resting rate is.

If your HR doesn't fall during a cool period, then you need to back off intensity and get more rest and sleep.

Oh and stretch. Every night.
