Brief Answer:
can be normal for some persons

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The normal heart rate is 60 to 100 for most persons.

In persons who are physically active, the heart rate can go below 60. If you exercise often, this is the likely reason for the decrease in your heart rate.

If there is no dizziness or shortness of breath or clamminess then you can monitor the pressure.
If you are having symptoms, then you need to be assessed.

You would need a BP check and ECG if you are checked

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
