Are these speeds normal for my hard drive?

I have a old Western Digital 1TB black and I have been having some performance issues lately, and I decided to run HD Tune to see if anything to see if anything was wrong, and the results seem to be too inconsistent and a sign that something is wrong with my hard drive but I would love another opinion. I will leave a screen shot below with the results of the test with HD Tune. If it matters I will also post my specs. Thanks!

    I am not seeing anything that worries me, but maybe I don't know something or I am missing something. It is not abnormal for drives to drop off in performance as they go through the test. From the table in the first website you will see that speeds are generally in the range of 43.4-97.8 MB/s for large block, sequential read/write operations for 7200 RPM drives.
