Northern ExileSteve, I agree - age is a monumental pain in the ass.
HR is such a subjective thing isn't it? My max HR has dropped about 1/2 beat per year over the past decade, I'm 60 very soon and think my max is around 178, however that ratio doesn't extend to performance - no way could I run at the comfortable paces that I used to.

steve4517 years ago my max HR was 174 (checked by doing max HR test), I was 55 then. It's now 159 having used the same testing methods. Glad you agree about age/ pia Northern Exile !! Dunno about subjectivity really, using a chest HRM is objective enough innit?!!😂 It's just too bad, when I run I reckon I feel just the same as I did way back but if I had film footage of both efforts I'd be shocked at the dropped pace!
