Can someone tell me about the recovery heart rate on my 310xt?

I get that it checks my rate 2 minutes after exercise. What I don't understand is what to do with that number. It seems that the higher my rate at the end of my workout, the higher the recovery number would be.

I have read the document linked in an earlier post on this, but it tells what to do with the rate after a 1 minute check, which is vastly different that the 2 minute number that Garmin gives.

Thanks
