What should my resting heart rate and max heart rate be? I'm a 48yr old female who exercises 4-5 days/wk.

In brief: Yes

Resting heart rate is normally between 60-90.
It can be lower for athletes or very fit people. The maximum heart rate is 220 minus the person's age. The recommendation for moderate intensity exercise is to maintain heart rate at 50-70% of the maximum heart rate.
