I love this one - easy points for me!! My BP is always very low. I'll go to the pharmacy across the street at lunchtime and get it checked.<br><br>

NBjunkie, it's easy: just call 911 and complain of chest pains. The EMT will take your BP for you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

I've got my own cuff at home since I have borderline high bp and I keep an eye on it. It was 134/83 this morning so I'm just able to claim the 10 points!

I can walk over to the pharmacy just a few blocks from my work and take my BP there. I've never used one of those store BP checkers before - are they fairly accurate? And I just got done running on my lunch hour - should I wait awhile to get a more accurate reading or should that not affect it?

The machine at the pharmacy says<br><br>
96/62<br><br>
Not sure if that is accurate - It looks like I am almost dead.

I walked over to the grocery store that has one of those BP cuff machines at their pharmacy.<br>
It said my BP was 120/73. I don't think my top number ever even got that high when I was pg! My normal BP, like when I have it checked at the docs office, is usually right around 105/65.<br>
so, I guess I only get 10 pts today for BP <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad">

128/78. Crap - it is never that high. We have a cuff because my wife has high blood pressure, and it runs rampant in her family. I check it fairly often. It is usually ~115/60.

a bit higher than usual, but I usually only get it checked once a month early in the morning at the red cross. this was using the grocery store's blood pressure measuring machine.

Mine was 110/84. That's great for me -- it's usually much higher. I have really bad hypertension and take meds for it. Untreated it's around 180/110; thank goodness for meds! So I guess it's 10 points for me. I have a cuff b/c I'm an EMT.<br><br>
Actually I had a stroke around 16 years ago, and since then my bp has been really high and requires regular checks and medication.<br><br>
