This isn't so abnormal and there could be many causes for why it isn't lower. Tachycardia is a rate >100. Obesity, poor cardiopulmonary condition (couch potato), smoking, hypertension, anxiety, cardiac conditions,etc. can cause rapid heart rate. Because it sounds as if it worries you, speak to your doctor to rule out an organic cause for it. You may be glad you did.
