Wait a minute, your hearts don't go above 190?

I've seen a couple posts about people's hr's here and they seem low to me.

I do my long races @ 170-175, short races at 180+ vs. my max I've seen on my Garmin of 193 (also during a race). I'm 34.

I posted this in the other thread but should've posted here:
Here's mine on the rack after this weekend's race. I'm loving the scalpel, its a blast. Well over 500mi this year now so far. Rode in the clydesdale class and beat everybody in my heat, but I was a lot less clydesdale-y than the rest of them at 215# and 6'4. Not sure I'll do that again vs. just running my age group.



And here's the strava from that race:

It varies by age. A rough estimate of a person's max. heart rate is 220 minus their age in years, so in your case it would be around 186 BPM, while for me it would be 168 BPM.

I know that was being a bit sarcastic.

I'm not riding far enough to training for anything so sensors and whatnot aren't really a high priority for me.

Yup.
I figured this bicycle stuff turned my clock back almost 15 years.

Maximum HR is not so much a measure of a person's fitness level as is their reserve heart rate and length at which they can maintain exertion throughout their threshold. I'm 38yo and typically max out at 180-185 on really hard efforts. That said, I can maintain my output at 170-175 for quite a long time because I've trained my fitness to those thresholds. We have a local racer that is 62 years old and regularly thrashes guys 1/3 his age. A lot of that is skill, tactics and strategy, but he also has a threshold level that most athletes envy.

HR can be a finicky mistress if used for training purposes. Much more so as one progresses into racing competitively and trying to peak for certain periods and/or specific races. Power is a much better metric to use for training as it encompasses all of the variables and is much more stable.

Sounds about right. My max. HR is supposed to be around 168 BPM, using the 220-age calculation, but I average in the mid to upper 150's on my rides.

To put things in perspective HR-wise, I get on the bike and the Garmin says ~55bpm.

I start riding and I can tootle down the road in the 80s. I get going at 100. I'm working at 130. I've seen 159 this season, but that's as high as its gotten.

I can maintain 140-145 for a long time, but get higher than 145 or so and I'm in trouble.

Once I get some more real road miles under my belt I figure I can ride with the shops early morning rides some weekends.
Last night I got caught by three young, semi-fast guys, and sat it for a bit until the masher at the front slowed down to slower than I wanted to go. I went to the front since the other two guys seemed to be just hanging out and wound it back up to where I had been when they caught me.
Dropped them.
So into the wind I figured I'd see what I had, and wound it to 20 mph and hung there until I got to the construction.Long light let me recover quite well. When they caught me out in the wind again, I spun up to the back, and just sat.
That's what those young guys are for. Motors to tow us old fat guys around.
It's a great feeling to see marked improvement over time! You sound like you are getting stronger by the day... 550? Do you mean the Garmin? It is a 500, and I like to be able to see my total mileage, average speed, routes, etc. VT in 2 weeks!!!

Yes, the 500.
I'm thinking eventually of migrating to one device.
One ring to rule them all...
As far as I got myself out of shape daily improvement with regular workouts is easy at this stage.
Though today I am beat a bit.

Heart rate.
For me my resting pulse has always been low. at times low enough that some would think there was a problem.
In high school when they first took notice of this during a pre-season physical, (Our team doctor was one for the Denver Bronco's. No, we were not that good, the workout facility was near our school and one of our coaches and the doc were buddies.). Anyway they noted my pulse at 23. I was 15 or 16.
After getting married 7 or 8 years later it was measured again when the company I worked for had a big company-wide physical. Two things I recall from that, first they had us blow into a tube and hold a ball at the top of a column. I blew into the tube and held the ball there more than twice as long as anybody else had. And second, they tried to retire me on medical because my heart rate was too low along with my blood pressure. My family doctor who had known me since I was 3 or so said nope, normal for me.

Now the BP isn't that low. I forget what it is, but it isn't real low, thanks to work and inactivity.

My heart rate is coming back down. Resting I'm normally around 45 to 50. When I warm up I figure I'm warm when I'm spinning with little effort at 120-ish.
I currently easily work hard and average 140 bpm for two hours. That is probably about as hard as I can sustain for that period on average. My max so far seems to be 173.
The last day I climbed I noticed it was there and I had about 200 feet to get to a level, shaded stopping point. When I stopped I was wobbly, not light-headed yet, but definitely worked.

Last night I noticed I could push into the 150's and hold my effort there for a while, maybe a minute, which felt like five.

. I don't understand how someone of my age and physical condition can maintain a higher heart rate than you and Gummee.

Obviously Gummee! and I are incredible physical specimens in some sort of beyond category level of conditioning.

I just finished a hard workout where STRAVA says I hit over a Kilowatt of output no less.
And my pulse here at the computer after about 20 minutes is 67 bpm.
I averaged 130 for an hour 44, and bounced off the max a bit at 173.

You should see my HR charts in Garmin Connect. No straight lines anywhere. I can go from 'full gas legs on fire!' to 70-bpm in the space of a downhill.

Highest I've EVER seen was 181. That was right after college down at Haynes Pt. ...and that was 1994
