target heart rate

I'm a 29 year old woman. Not in the greatest shape sinse I had my baby and hysterectomy. At rest my heart rate is between 85-100. I know when you excersise you want to get your heart rate up, but how much? I want to start doing some running again and more arobics. I have never pushed myself too hard before, so my heart rate never got that high. But I feel ready to kick up my routien a notch or two. What happens when you get your heart rate up too high?
thanks everybody

I would recommend calling your Dr and asking. Your heart rate will go down as you excersise more.

Example- When I went in for a stress test, since I work out, it took a while to get my heart rate up to 150 which is what they wanted

Nalla, from what I've been told in school and from research on the internet your THR should be somewhere in the late 90's to mid 100's.

Here's a site:

I put the age for you. Hope it helps!
