I thought it might be useful to share some facts from heart.org for those of you who want to know what your max and target heart rates should be.

Know Your Numbers: Maximum and Target Heart Rate

Know Your Numbers: Maximum and Target Heart Rate

This table shows target heart rate zones for different ages. Your maximum heart rate is about 220 minus your age.3

In the age category closest to yours, read across to find your target heart rates. Target heart rate during moderate intensity activities is about 50-70% of maximum heart rate, while during vigorous physical activity it’s about 70-85% of maximum.

The figures are averages, so use them as a general guide.
