Maximum heart rate
I have had a St Jude/Abbott CRT for about 8 months. I’ve been running (etc) for about 45 years (roughly 20 miles per week, more when I was younger) which I continue to do. I’m 71. I wondering if there are additional opinions about maximum heart rate since my resting HR is set at 60 bpm but I have not much trouble seeing my HR go to 160 running up hill (as determined by my fitbit, which I realize is problematic).
I recently re-read some posts about maximum heart rate and consulted some calculators (like https://www.alpinetrek.co.uk/heart-rate-calculator/ ) . So I’m just wondering if these age-based maxima have meaning for those of us who are paced. Before PM my resting heart rate was in the 40s for most of 40 years.
