This would fall within the range of a normal blood pressure (average is 120/80), but the important question is: is it normal for you? A person's blood pressure can vary widely, so a single reading isn't always accurate. You can buy blood pressure devices at retail stores such as walmart to keep a log of your blood pressure and get an average number for yourself. Anything under 90/60 would be considered too low, or hypotension, as opposed to hypertension at any reading above 140/90.

As long as you aren't experiencing any weakness, tiredness, fatigue, fainting, dizziness, your lower-than-average blood pressure could simply indicate a strong, healthy heart.

As for your heart rate, it too falls within the lower end of the normal range. Anything between 60-100 beats per minute is considered normal, with lower rates usually indicating stronger, more efficient hearts and cardiovascular systems. In fact, a normal heart rate for a well-fit athlete could be as low as 40 bpm. Again, as long as you're not experiencing any symptoms that might indicate an underlying problem associated with brachycardia (slow heart rate), and these might include faiting, dizziness, or shortness of breath, your blood pressure and heart rate could be normal for you and do fall into normal values.
