Heart

Patient

Q: Hi, i have just started jogging with my friend who is 37 years old and a boxer for many years. I got my friend to wear some heart moniter kit that i bought and we found that his resting heart rate is about 100 bpm and when we are runing not at full pace for about 5 miles his heart rate is about 202 beats per minute even downhill and 3 minutes after we start to run he gets to this level.
Should he be concerned about this level.
I am 52 and my heart rate on the runs are about 140 to 160 and i have a resting heart rate of 53.
