I've been paranoid about my heart since I started running and always wear an HR monitor.
Completed my first marathon last November in Athens and planned to do Paris this Sunday. Training has gone so well but...
Dr has picked up ventricular tachycardia and an MRI has shown a tiny scar on my heart. He has advised against running any more marathons, but says I can continue runnig and going to the gym as normal?!
I'm gutted as I'm 36, felt like I'd found my event/sport, and I'm at a bit of a loss as to what my goals should be from here on out.
Trying to be positive, and very grateful for the doc's advice and that I didn't keel over mid race from overdoing it, but still...
Anyone else out there had to re-assess? Anyone out there made a comeback from something like this? Wondering of another distance or sport would fill this void.
