Most of the comments from my last post expressed concern about what all of that means. Can I still run? Am I fixed? Will it come back?
Here is the deal:
I basically had two "wires" and we are supposed to only have one. The pair (I was born with them) would cause a circuit causing me to go into tachycardia without a known trigger. (Some people it is cold air, coffee, coughing... etc, I did not have a clear trigger). Dr. S, went in and "zapped" the "weaker" one so I won't have a circuit anymore.
Am I fixed? Yes... but I wonder why God gave me 2... what if the other one "craps" out one day... but I have FAITH it was the right decision?
Can I still run? Yes... but have to take it easy. I ran 6 yesterday... yeah, I know, I wasn't supposed to. I felt weird. Maybe I was hyper-sensitive. Not sure. What I do know was that my heart was racing:
1. Could have been that I was clocking 7:40 miles - my legs had a week break
2. I over dressed and was burning up - think UA cold gear top and it was 45 degrees (stupid mistake)
3. Could be that my heart always races, I was just freaking out.
4. I was light headed - but was that because I was too hot and was running too fast?
I ran 6 miles in 48:45... CRAZY fast for me. I went home instead of running 12 more.
Will it come back? No, unless I am super-human (which I know is debatable)!
If this has taught me ANYTHING... it would be to LISTEN to your body! LISTEN! If something feels wrong, get it checked out.
