Eczema and sweating

Posted: Yesterday at 23:07

I am no eczema bod (my wife is big time, unlucky her), but I do get quite bad cold urticaria and split fingers.

We have both found this product called "Snowfire" on Amazon following recommendation. Very good for cracked skins. It's an emollient and stinks to high heaven but it is brilliant.


Atrial Flutter...What Next?

Posted: Yesterday at 23:02

Hi all, thought I would drop back in just to update really i had cryo ablation in August 2013 following various incidents and a blow up at Outlaw 2012.

So, nearly three years. My MHR before ablation (BA) was about 212, now 185 if I am lucky, 10k PB was just under 50 mins, now about 58. RHR BA was 54, now about 65-68. Erratic beats still? Yes. But usually only for no more than 5-10 seconds maybe. Apparently has to be 30 seconds to count as AF. Lots of issues re acid reflux and this triggering odd erratic beats via vagal nerve we think. Thank God for Omeprazole!

Sprint finish is now about 20 yards, had 80 before. Ticker seems about 80% of what it was before. Runs 8 miles are a problem. At least double hydration with electrolytes needed now for every run.

55 years old now (shut up Meldy and Plum). Still going, done one tri since ablation, like to do another but sprint is probably limit. Feel quite fragile very easily with dizzy spells etc.

Hope this helps someone.

Yeah, I wondered about the medal too but we did get a towel. 58 something for me. PB on that course since the ticker trouble. I'll take that.

Going back again Monday with Lord H, bit of a tradition now. Long gone are the worst race toilets in the world.  This is a well run, nicely organised, well supported race.
