Just bought a running watch and went for a 5k run and then the other day for a 10k run. There is a range of a heart rate that is originally set up at 75 bpm at lower end and 175 bpm at higher end.
Now, I wonder what is the 'normal' maximum heart rate while running??? My watch warned me with a signal that my heart is beating above 175 (as it is set to that value which I can change). Actually, the max heart rate I had was 183. Is that normal during a run or not? Am I in danger while runing at that heart rate? Most of the time during my runs my heart rate was around 170 to 177. But at some points it went above to the max of 184 as I said. Should I be worried?
Thanks all for help!
