Heart rate blood pressure

I’m 51 years of age, Sitting on the couch with in two minutes my pulse drops to low 40’s. Low was 42  Currently as I type this it’s 44.  Yesterday at the Dr,s my blood pressure was 140/70 ish.  It’s been creeping up over the last 3-5 years.  First time I’ve seen 140 though. I’m fairly athletic and exercise 6-12 hours a week at ALL levels of intensity.  Cholesterol has normally been about mid to upper mid “normal.”  And I don’t usually get dizzy upon standing.  Should I be concerned? I guess I should include I drink about 5 alcoholic drinks a day usually in the evening.

Given the gravity of that question, I'd go back to that doctor and ask about it.  Might just be your device but it would be good to know.
