Looks like I went over that. 6 weeks ago I'd never have been able to do this (an hour of singles badminton)

I love my Polar Heart Rate Monitor - the closet geek in me !!

It's a mater of choice, hard work and a bit of OCD !!

Years ago I learned that the reference number they always
give as "max HR" is nowhere near the number I would
experience when I maxed out while speedskating (220). The
real number can be very individual.

I do find exercise mostly based on HR zones very very helpful. I'd love to try speedskating though
