Here are a few things I found interesting, either about heart health, running, or the intersection thereof.
On pain tolerance masking heart attack symptoms. This is interesting for me for a few reasons. I don’t consider myself to have a high tolerance for pain, but this does describe me a bit. As near as I can determine, I just crossed my 3 year anniversary of my “event”, but I was not aware that it was happening.
A good read by a recent twitter follower. Age, fitness, diet, none of this makes one immune to heart issues. This hits home because I thought all three did.
It isn’t clear that this study is saying anything interesting other than the obvious: it’s hard to keep people exercising. But I’ll read just about anything on Cardiac Rehab.
It’s good to know that small changes can help.
I like all of Brad Stulberg’s writing, but this is something I try to remember and occasionally remind others of without being too preachy, exercise helps everything.
This is a great read about focusing too much on what amounts to minor details in the big scheme of things, fitness wise.
A fun read by my favorite fitness writer (@sweatscience) about fads we’ll talk about in 2017. “The details of 2017’s hottest supplement remain murky, but there will certainly be one – just like last year, the year before and so on.”
Also, tons of googling “post marathon recovery”, “marathon reverse taper”, etc.
Finally, a few bits of twitter induced paranoia:
and also continuing to monitor my google alert “heart surgery infection” from this news of the last few months.
