Bradycardia

My resting heart rate is usually 55-65. It says on the internet that this could be a sign of Bradycardia. I am not overly concerned about this, I just wondered if a low resting heart rate could indicate fitness as well as a heart problem? I excercise for about 1-2 hours every day, and complete a 14 mile run once a week currently. (with shorter runs and bike rides in between) My BMI is 24.5 and falling.

your resting heart rate it totally normal. you are not classed as bradycardic untill you heart rate falls under 48bpm. fitness is the prime factor in having a lower heart rate. NOTHING to worry about i promise you
