Running and over 35

Saturday, December 01, 2012

Just saw a news story that if you run and are over 35, you may actually be harming your heart.

Good thing that I quit running in my 20's!

    Not to worry --- unless you are a marathon running, endurance type runner. And a 5K does NOT count as endurance level. This article highlights the importance of cardiac testing for long distance athletes.

    I'm running at near 76, and doing WELL! God Bless YOU! Vic.
