Atrial Flutter...What Next?

Posted: 30/01/2016 at 09:35
Well it looks back to square one for me.
I had atrial tachycardia for about 20 years. I always put it down to alcohol and smoking. I quit them 5 years ago and took up running. The tachycardia then got worse and finally went to my GP and was referred to the cardiologist, where the diagnosis was made. Had a catheter ablation last August and at first all was good with no events at all. Then just before Christmas they stated again. Not as bad as they were before the procedure (they used to last hours then) and are mainly running induced I've been back to have a holter monitor this week and managed to catch 4 events on it. I'm hoping that he will do the procedure again as at the time he thought that he might have missed a bit I've also read that it is possible that the heart might heal the burn and the pathway starts firing again

I've always used the running as a medicine for the depression and to keep me off the booze. I'm a bit worried at the moment so maybe that a why I'm getting a few attacks

My question is has anyone found any diet changes or supplements help with the tachycardia?

Heart Rate Traing

Posted: 12/01/2016 at 15:32
When I tested my max heart rate on a bike it was 10bpm less than when running. This is because when on a bike you are resting a lot of your weight on the handlebars

As someone said run at 12.30 until your heart rate gets into range then stick at that pace until you start improving Don't think it will take long

Hi all. I'm sort of follow the p and d. Hope my body does not break down doing the miles. I find the 10 milers a great benefit to aerobic fitness

Quick question about the long slow run. Reading the explantion in the book it says should start at 20% slower than race pace and then speed up to 10% quicker. I understand that it's the heart rate bit I do not understand. It says 74% to 84%. I was always under the impression that the long slow run should be under 75%. Who is right?
