As a runner sometimes recently I realized that I am overdoing. Thanks to my friends who warned me after seeing my heart rate. I have been getting injured on a regular basis. I have not gone for my regular long runs for some time now. I am on rest for a few more weeks.
The book Haywire Heart talks about our craving for adventure sports, running, cycling et all and how it affects our heart. Most of us are overdoing it. Can it be because of our goals or that shiny medal or personal milestones?
I liked the book and every chapter. It has its own unique story, injury, and diagnosis.
Added screenshot from the book where the author talks about the cardiac arrest and heart attack.
