Maximum heart rate

For some time I've been using a maximum heart rate of 172bpm but this evening's run implies that I could be capable of being closer to 190bpm.

My attempt to have a decent pace along the Millhouses Park 1km Strava segment gave couple of points above 185bpm. Oddly I didn't reach anything like this heart rate ascending to Dore but there I'm limited by leg power too.

Certainly this run was better for not being over dressed although a pair of gloves would have made the time more pleasant. Looking back at my times on this 12km road loop I'm disappointed that I can't achieve times that I managed three years ago as a much more inexperienced runner. Is this due to being 3 years older or too many plodding-paced runs?
