Heart Rate Response: Conditioning vs. Illness

Hey all!

AWESOME DATA on a followup to a post I made a couple of weeks ago.

The preceding graphs are tracking resting heart rate.

The picture on the left is my own heart rate in the last month. Last weekend, I came down with a non-covid illness. Though not drastic, there is a definite uptick in resting heart rate that can explain (and actually, helped predict) an impending illness.

The picture on the right I received from a client who has been absolutely crushing his step/cardio goals for the last month. It demonstrates the change in heart rate with a single month of consistent cardiovascular exercise.

Bill Nye would be so proud. What other variables of change you would like to see in regard to increasing fitness and health?
