Thanks for writing to us.
The formula for maximum predicted heart rate for treadmill is [208 - 0.7 X age]. That is the maximal / target aimed at at exercise testing - it can be exceeded by some. With continued training, the rate can be less for the given work.
So, your rate at this level near peak exercise is normal. [- not at other times / especially resting heart rate should not be high (100/minute)...]
Hope that addresses your concern.
Good luck
