Blood pressure drops


Q: Hi my name is Irakli I live in London 41 years old. My average blood pressure varies between 120/80 and 117/77 pulse 78 or 80. Recently I started to ice skate once a week and after the session like 6, 8 hours after, I notice little uncomfortable feeling and when I measure my blood pressure on device it shows 106/77 or 104/78 pulse 86. Should I carry on my ice skating (which I never done before) or should I be worried with blood pressure dropping like this even once a week and can this lead to a stroke? I have this BBC presenter in mind who had a stroke on the rowing machine.
Your answer is very important for me thanks.
