After a fast run, my heart beats very strongly often for about 36 hours, sometimes longer.  I don't think it is beating very fast (except initially of course) and my resting heart rate while this is happening s only about 45 to 50 bpm.  However, it is a little uncomfortable and stops me sleeping properly.  It only really calms down when I don't run at all for a week or more.  I only run twice/three times a week, 4-6 miles so can't be overtraining!  Am generally fit (I think!) and do other sports. What's going on??!!


  • I'm quite keen on my heart beating strongly.

    Is it any different to normal though ? Are you just more aware of it - especially at night with no noise or other distractions ?

    Other than that - see a doctor and put your mind at rest ?

    See a doctor, could be nothing but get a doctor to tell you that

  • Something going on with your heart???  Don't come to a running forum, see your doctor as soon as possible!

    Bit of advice: If you want medical advice, don't look on the internet.  Most of it will be wrong, and some of it will just outright scare you.
