your maximum heart rate is the top HR you have achieved. So call it 204. Much more accurate than the 220-age estimate.

BTW, one will know they are at their max HR by the fact that they suddenly feel the strong need to throw up violently an dperhaps get tunnel vision as well. Then you know you are pushing yourself.
