I can't remember. Probably when I joined the force. Think it was ok. What does it mean that yours is high then?

What was your BP?

Edit, nevermind, i'm guessing you fit the one between 140-160/90-100

Was there anything that day which could have driven yours up?

152 - Systolic
74 - Diastolic

Only thing I can think of was my morning cardio, but that was 4 hours before I got it checked.

That's very odd, and yeah, a 152 systolic isn't good.

Were you dehydrated? In the meantime, I'd suggest taking more fish oils, and drinking more water.

It was only one reading, I'm not going to worry about it untill I get it checked again.

I had one at the gym I was at. Before when I was pretty crook with low blood pressure I tried to continue weight training got someone to take my blood pressure after a set of 10 reps on squats and after 3 readings the highest was about 110/51 lol.

are u nervous when ure at the doc? ive always had a phobia against doctors and needles and such. so last time i measured i got mine measured to 150/75. so i relaxed alittle and calmed myself down and measured again and it was already down to 130/70.

also did u use any tobacco or coffee or something before u went in? both nicotine and caffeine narrows the blood vessels and can heighten it. on a positive note ur dystolic pressure is normal, and thats the most important thing ive been told, because the systolic pressure can vary alot depending on alot of different factors.
