Thanksgiving Dinner Heart Rate Analysis

Click here for UF vs LSU Heart Rate Analysis

I’m a man of my word.

I had high hopes for our family Thanksgiving this year.  We had new relationships, an election, and the usual expectation of family member(s) going in on the alcohol.  But for the most part, this was one of our most relaxed family events ever… Or so I thought.  I was on edge all night without even realizing it.  i averaged 81.4 BPM for the whole night compare to my usual resting  My biggest heart rate jumps came when the food presumably got to me and I started to chow down, and then when we went around saying goodbyes.  Goodbyes are always awkward for me, and I’m too self-aware of that so my heart rate jumps.  The chart is listed below.

For fun let’s do comparisons to the UF vs LSU game.  Thanksgiving is in blue superimposed over LSU in Orange.  A quick takeaway: My general resting point seems to be about equal over the two events, but the UF vs LSU Football Game caused huge variations in heart rate.

UF 16 – LSU 10 | Post-Game Heart Rate Analysis

UF 16 – LSU 10

*Scroll down to skip UF fandom*

     What a game!  The build-up was insane, and the game lived up to the hype and even delivered more!  The UF vs LSU Football game was originally scheduled for October 8th in Gainesville, FL but was then canceled due to projected devastation of Hurricane Matthew.  The storm hit hard in Daytona and Jacksonville causing severe flooding, property damage, and other extreme conditions on the roads and elsewhere.  It was unsafe for people to be traveling throughout the state of Florida, let alone go to a football game.  The University of Florida Athletic Department tried to work with the SEC and Louisiana State University to reschedule the game, but LSU refused to comply.  Eventually, an agreement was reached to have the game played on November 19th in Baton Rouge, LA (?), LSU’s FCS opponent would be bought out, and the University of Florida would receive compensation for two lost home games, as well as giving UF a home game for the series in 2017.

Long story short, UF gave up a home game to get the game played after LSU refused to comply, and for some reason LSU created a story that the Gators were “scared” to play?  We’re going to play in Death Valley instead of at home in The Swamp.  Tell me again how we’re scared? Scroll to the bottom

The game:

Absolute Insanity

When UF got the ball on their own 2 yard line in the 3rd quarter, I decided to get my watch and track heart rates throughout the game.  Here’s what we got.  The orange line is average heart rate for the minute block, with gray lines showing minimums and maximums.

uflsuheartrate

What a game.  Go Gators.  Think again about who was scared, LSU.
