Iam aiming for sub 4 in this years London marathon so may well tap into your thread to see if I can pick up any tips.Completed London in3hrs 52 in 2008 but had a problem with the ticker in 2009, seems to be behaving itself at the moment.
Good luck with all your training. looking at you times for previous races I think you have a very good chance of running under 4.Keeping on running!!How's the training going in this awful weather
Help I suffer with a heart arrythmia ie if I run too fast my heart rate shoots up to 180 bpm I havent run a race since last October Ihave entered Bristol half in Sept has anyone got any ideas what pace I should train at.Prior to this problem I was completing half marathons in 1hour 50m.
HI MR NICE GUY HAVE NOT DONE MUCH RUNNING SINCE I LAST HAD CONTACT WITH YOU.WENT OUT ON MONDAY TOOK IT STEADY EVERY TIME THE HEART RATE GOTTO 170 THOUGH I WAS FEELING FINE I SLOWED DOWN AND THE HEART RATE DROPPED IMMEDIATELY.LOOKS LIKE I WILL JUST HAVE TO RUN MUCH SLOWER THESE DAYS AND BE GRATEFUL THAT I AT LEAST CAN RUN AT ALL. I AM DEFINETELY GOING TO PUSH FOR ANOTHER ATTEMPT AT ABALATION AS I HAVE A GOOD FOR AGE ENTRY FOR LONDON MARATHON NEXT YEAR AND I WANT TO BE ON THAT START LINE
HI HELEN I HAVE BEING TOLD THAT IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO RUN IF YOU ARE ON BETA BLOCKERS IT REALLY SLOWS EVERYTHING DOWN YOU FEEL AS THOUGH SOMEONE IS TRYING TO PULL YOU BACKWARDS. I HAVE TRIED PRESSING ON THE ARTERIES IN THE NECK BUT IT NEVER WORKED FOR ME BUT THAT DOSEN'T MEAN THAT IT WONT WORK FOR YOU. THE OTHER OPTION IS SOMETHING CALLED THE VALSALVA MANOVURE WHERE YOU TAKE A DEEP BREATH PUT YOUR FINGERS IN YOUR EARS AND BLOW OUT REALLY HARD.GIVE IT A TRY. IT SOMETIMES WORKS FOR ME.GOOD LUCK
THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH FOR YOU INFORMATION PLEASED TO KNOW THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THIS PROBLEM. I WILL TAKE ON BOARD ALL THE INFORMATION GIVEN AND NEXT TIME I GO OUT FOR A RUN TRY AND PUT IN TO PRACTICE THE IDEAS THAT PEOPLE HAVE SUGGESTED. TO THE CARDIAC PHYS I DO THINK THAT I HAVE AN ADDITIONAL PATHWAY I AM SURE THAT WAS MENTIONED BY THE CARDIOLOGIST. I AM STILL WAITING FOR ANOTHER APPOINTMENT TO SEE HIM.I HAVE HAD NO CONTACT SINCE THE ATTEMPTED ABALATION.ANY IDEAS WHERE I GO FROM HERE.
