Thanks in advance and happy, safe riding to you'all!
Respiration rate is a better measure of core body temperature while heartrate
recovery measures metabolic changes more accurately. Unless you're doing very
strenuous and extended lactate-producing work, you can figure that you'll have
a quick HR recovery. HR and RR recoveries will parallel each other in most
circumstances, except where an elevated body temp keeps RR higher for a while.
