Orapidrun & spitfire ....I've had very similar issues s you have with heart rate and other stuff .... Heat was the trigger, ... My issue was hormonal cardiomyopathy ... According to my lovely top notch doc .... Since being on hrt for the last 8 months the difference is stunning .... Been given the all clear and now doing first ultra on 2 august & Paris 2015. At one stage whilst being monitored for a week, hr hit 148 at 11 cowlick at night and as I assured my cardiologist i was sleeping ... Was horrendous at the time but good now. So keep the faith took them oh about 18months to figure it out. Must admit have had to learn to run to hr level rather than speed .... I also can tell instantly if not right .... Know the signs, all about being aware and dare I say sensible (very odd to be uttering those words) ....
Have been inspired again by all the amazing reports. The heat sounds awful ... And some of you will know how much I just love running in any form of heat .... Usually spend time with my friends the medics.
Dannir is so right, you really can only control the 'controlables' & every single runner on Sunday gave of their best, whatever the outcome. A marathon is an exceptional achievement and the time in which the distance is completed for me is a secondary thing, you're all winners ???? so huge congrats to you all & see you on at the arc in 2015. ????.
Takes one to know one OO ... How's the tiara Will be there am booking hotel at end of this month whilst in Paris with mr PF ... wikl be trotting down plaze de Concorde & along the seine ...hopefully ....I like to be well prepared
