Hi, I used to run regularly – up and out of the door by 5.30 am 3 or 4 times each week. That was until 4 weeks ago when I had 2 heart attacks and heart surgery. I am recovering well and plan to return to work soon but I am struggling to get my fitness back to where it was before the heart attacks. I used to run a 4 mile route at a leisurely 36 minutes but I have struggled to run for more than 20 minutes before having to stop and walk because I am just too tired. My doctor and rehabilitation nurse have advised to do as much as I am comfortable doing and to build up slowly but I seem to have just got stuck on 20 minutes.
Does anybody out there have any experience of starting to run again after a heart attack and any advice they can share.
