How do I use HR monitor if Max HR is wrong?

Training for a 10M, and trying to use my Garmin305, but my HR is always higher than I expect.  I used the formula to set the %s, so Max HR is 220-38 = 182.  Catch is, my Garmin has my Max HR at 188 almost every run.  I can see I am not sustaining that HR, but I am also not trying to get my HR up high. It makes me think that 182 is wrong (for me) but I'm at a loss as to how to determine what my training ranges might be.  Should I just stick with the formula stop worrying about it?
