Hi, This is courtesy DR Frank.

 Though BP does have a tendency to rise with age, normal blood pressure in adults is not age dependant and remains constant at 120/80.

Pulse rate should be 68-70.

If you ensure you are no more than your ideal weight, take regular vigorous exercise and reduce your salt intake, you increase your chances of having both normal BP and pulse rate

Good Luck
