Yeah, Max HR is the highest HR you have achieved. If you've reached that point when you feel like you're going to puke, heart's going to explode out your chest, you want to die, etc., then you've probably reached your max HR. I'm 29, and by 220-age My max is 191, but I've gone as high as 195 on the bike, with all above feelings noted.

Be careful about that 204 measurement--one of my rides has a bridge that goes over some high-voltage train cables, and my HR always hits 231. Just make sure the numbers make sense.
