Below is a graph of an exercise session. The red squiggly line is of my heart rate over the whole, in this case, 6km run. The triangles at the bottom show the intervals. If you look closely you can see that in this case my running interval was 55 seconds and my walking interval was 90 seconds. But my heart rate varies very little, it stays at about 135 bpm, and the max recorded rate here is 142 bpm. I would like to get a comparison with someone who is relatively fit to show the difference, but I would assume that someone of my age would normally have a much more varied heart rate. It should probably vary from the high hundreds to the low hundreds running these intervals. I think because of the medication I am on the response is much slower, and my maximum heart rate is also much lower.
