Heart rate training- Getting better?

Just did a max heart rate test this evening using a hill of 150 metres, short but steep. Did five sprints up with recovery jog down. on the fourth ascent my heart rate hit 180 and I could not get it any higher on the fifth attempt. As my previous test 6 months ago was 185, does this mean I'm getting better or worse?


  • It means your getting older! lol

    No idea, sorry image

    Hows your resting heart rate, has that got any higher recently. I only ask because  you may be coming down with a virus this will make  it hard to push your HR up to its maximum

    Were you fully rested for the HR test

    Were all your previous HR tests done in the same way

  • Previous tests were done the same way and my resting rate is currently 54 and has not changed. Had the dat off running beforehand.
