Running and Irregular heart beat


Recommended Posts

Hello there,

 

I have been a treadmill runner for about 12 years and an outdoor runner since the pandemic.

 

I have recently started feeling a bit uncomfortable with my heart rhythm. It feels like I am not getting enough air or like my resting heart rate is high, occasionally. I researched online and ended up with more questions :) - some say running can be a medicine for abnormal heart rhythm but, others say it could be the cause in the first place.

 

Just wondering if anyone have had a similar experience and what worked to fix it. I am worried that this condition may keep me from running :(

 

Appreciate any advice!

 

P.S.: My doctor did some tests and said it is nothing to worry about but the discomfort lingers around.

See a different doctor.

 

I'm not trying to be dismissive, it's just that this is not a good place to go to for medical advice. If you are genuinely worried about your heart rhythm, that's what you need to seek out, especially if the discomfort is a new development.

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

Thanks!

I consulted the doctor and got some other tests done including a treadmill test. There is no issue detected and the doctor gave a green to running; he asked me to relax a bit too :).

 

Thanks!

It sounds like you've over done it, like your doctor said relax no point rushing your fitness as that's how accidents happen :)

I think there's nothing to worry about. Maybe give it a rest from time to time. There's a high chance you're overdoing it. I would suggest observing your pace, just to know your limit. Walk, brisk walk, jog, and run and identify at what point you feel uncomfortable.
