Got the call. A great call. No meds. Start working out - easy and consistently. Get back into working out. I have an "athlete's heart". This means a slightly enlarged heart. Very common. A giant relief.
What do I change?
Shorter runs - for now. Diet is strictly being watched. Meaning - clean protein sources (usually grilled or baked) with veggies. CHO (carbs) come from fruits and veggies. In 2003, I watched my weight in a balanced, intelligent manner and toed the line at IM USA at 157 lbs. I think I could have gone lower, but I was burnt out from preparing for Ironman for four straight years and doing a ton of travel for work. (Burning the candle at both ends.)
While I'm working my tail off... I have learned how to balance things much better.
See you on the trail
