    Stats - are they okay?

    Your maximum heart rate should be no higher than (220-age) so for you 187. Here is a formula to figure out what you want as a target heart rate. This is based off the Karvonen Formula.

    220 - 33 (age) = 187
    187 - 125 (resting heart rate) = 62
    62 * 65% (low end of heart rate) OR 85% (high end) = 40.3 OR 52.7
    40.3 + 125 (resting heart rate) = 165 52.7 + 125 (rhr) = 177
    The target heart rate zone for this person would be 165 to 177

    My biggest concern would be your resting heart rate, as that is very high. Your O2 sats are acceptable, anything below 89 (88 and below) can cause lung damage. Over the course of time, as you get yourself in better cardio health, your resting heart rate should hopefully lower. A healthy heart rate for women is around 70-80 beats per minute and 65-77 for men, lower if in great health though. You have to keep in mind, with cf, the resting heart rate may be a bit higher because your body has to work harder for oxygen exchange, and it may be further heightened from infection. It probably isn't bad idea to ease into working out, and also pick up a pulse-ox meter to keep tabs on your sats while working out.
