Heart Rate Recovery Drops in half

I have run a few marathons and have now decided to track my pulse to assist in my training.  Within a minute of stopping exercises my pulse is typically anywhere from 110 to 120.  However, I have noticed that my pulse will drop to 60 within the first minute of recovery and then go back to 108, etc.. I have put below 4 days of my readings after running.  The last reading seems bizarre, but I did run 13 miles that day and was a little dehydrated so I probably should throw out that reading.

Note my average resting pulse is 35.  Yes, thats correct it is 35 and occasionally it is 31.  2 years ago I recorded a 33 at my doctor's office and they confirmed with some type of test it was a correct reading.  The dr said the combination of my dna (my 3 brothers have high 30's when they are in excellent shape) and being in good shape has resulted in my low pulse.  I'm sure I am fine based on his feedback from 2 years ago , but I am curious about my Heart Recovery rate and if it drops significantly in the first minute and then goes up is normal.

My age is 50.
