Wongerchi,

That's what I was looking for!! Thank you so much!! Now the toughest part is going to be to test what the real max. heart rate is!! I have to find a spot and then I must also carry a watch (stop watch maybe)- my heart rate monitor is the simplest one, doesn't have anything else except the heart rate...
This was a great website - will visit again. Thank you so much!!!

AILULI, I'm with you - the 220-(your age) thing really doesn't work for me. Using this method, my max HR is 189 and 80% is 151. I can cruise at 160bpm for ages and can run 1k up into the 180s.

I found this article on beginnertriathlete.com - there's a bit about halfway down on finding your max HR, I have to give it a go one day.

Hope this helps...

To figure where you should be----(traditional method)

220-age (46) = 174 this is 100 % max

65-75% for wt loss/fat burn or base mile building =113-130bpm

75-85% for cardio conditioning=130-148

85-90% OCCAISIONALLY to push limit-148-157.

If I take the max. heart rate formulas that they give us usually, I'm way off every time I get on the treadmill. I'm 46 years old, I run almost every day and started spinning again. I have been registering total exhaustion at 187, and very often run between 168 - 177. How do you get your max. heart rate, I'm sure it's not 174 for me and I don't think 187 is max either - I think I might be able to get it higher if I tried.
I feel absolutely ok. when I run in the 170 plus, even can have conversation - so what should I do?
