# Thread: There is greater than 20 beats difference

1. ## There is greater than 20 beats difference

"There is greater than 20 beats difference between my race effort MHR and 220-age. I like 220-age because I like to run easy"

Is it correct?

2. ## Re: Is this sentence understandable?

Do you mean you are 220 years of age?

3. ## Re: There is greater than 20 beats difference

Polyester, you have been on the forum long enough to know that thread titles should include some or all of the words/phrases you are querying, not things like "Is my sentence correct?" I have changed your title.

I have no idea what you are trying to say. What's an "MHR" and what does "220-age" mean?

4. ## Re: There is greater than 20 beats difference

I advise the OP to provide a link to the 220-age formula, so that the teachers can figure it out.

5. ## Re: There is greater than 20 beats difference

We shouldn't have to figure it out, even using a link. I've asked the OP to explain it.

6. ## Re: There is greater than 20 beats difference

The sentences don't mean anything to me. Assuming someone who knows the context could understand something from them, "beats" should be possessive: 20 beats' difference.

7. ## Re: There is greater than 20 beats difference

Dimly recalling some stuff from a mandatory physical education class in college, this sounds like the OP is referring to pulse-rates when exercising. MHR, I think, was maximum heart rate. That's the upper limit you can stress your heart during exercise without risking severe damage.

You're supposed to exercise at a target heart rate of something like 75% of your MHR. (Don't quote me here, Google it for exact numbers.)

One way to calculate your maximum heart rate is to take 220 minus your age, although there are other methods.

I don't think the OP's sentence makes sense - you shouldn't be racing at your MHR. It's unclear also if the 20 point difference is higher or lower than the MHR.

The second sentence stating that he prefers the 220 minus age formula is also something of a non-sequitur.

8. ## Re: There is greater than 20 beats difference

So "220-age" was meant to be read as "220 minus age". That was not at all clear! The - appeared to be a hyphen.

Skrej,
You are too smart and clever.
You know the sentence meaning that you have searched it on Google.
I think I have got the answer, thank you all guys helping me.

Polyester, could you rewrite that so it's more clear?
