Ok i am trying to get a gauge on my efforts, my fitness and my fitness improvements. Looking for random internet input from other clydes, will be querying my Doctor next time i visit him
today my garmin said i hit my max heart rate for a bit, but i didnt feel winded or hurting on the section it said i did.
now if i do my short 15mile ride i try to stay around 160-163bpm, and my longer ride of 35-40mile ride i try to keep around 145-150bpm.
the bpm seems high doesnt it? But thats where I know and feel I get a good workout in those ranges. (actually been thinking i could push it a bit higher)
oh btw I am 34 years old 5'8" and 239lbs
