    Know your numbers

    Blood pressure numbers, so silent that you only know about them when you almost die or actually die. Should start to check in your 30's, but any male, over 40 should know them.
    Doesn't matter is you are as thin as a rail. Lifting, diet and some supplements my help you in a "natural" way.
    By the way, the old numbers are not good anymore.
    Short bucket list.

    I was just at the dr today, nurse told me 121/60 with a 42 HR @ 53yo. Nurse seemed a little startled at the HR and asked if I felt ok and I told that was normal for me.
    Don't know if the BP numbers are good or not, they didn't mention it, either way, which numbers are good now?

    I've been on lisinopril for years; inherited stuff. I see the doc every 6 mos, and have my own cuff at home. It's under control and the meds have no bearing on my fitness or VO2.
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.

    I suspect the "new numbers" are driven by the pharmaceutical industry rather than any significant reduction in lifespan.
