Cardio - How To Get Started ?

89 posts in this topic

Today though I think I will head to a store for shoes, I HATE shoe shopping though, I wear a tripple or quadruple E (pending brand) and its VERY hard to find anything decent, esply if you dont want to take a a 3rd mortage to buy a pair....

Oh yea, I might call the cardiodude :P too.

If you're sore today, start with three days a week. You'll be doing more soon enough... and it'll give some time for the weather to cool down. :-)

A friend of mine has wide feet (and small feet) and says the only shoes she can ever get is appropriately wide widths is New Balance. Try finding a store that specializes in running shoes (hooray for google), so they can properly fit your feet for arch support and motion control, and they will also not only be the most likely to have your size in stock, but may be willing to order odd sizes for you to just try, or direct you where you can find odd sizes. (They're generally staffed by running-geeks who know that it's better to get you in good shoes than to have you run in bad shoes - if you run in bad shoes, you'll stop running, and then wouldn't even come back to buy other running accessories.)

Yea New Balance is what I wore when I ran in HS. Was the only running shoe I could find that fit.

UMMMMM :o ERRR Well scratch just about everything you read in this thread out. :blink: Cause umm the "nurse" called back and siad that the doc said DONT YOU DARE! Well okay it was more of "He wants you to wait till your follow up MUGA scan befor you run at all" :huh: So I guess I will just walk on the treadmill. I guess dont need the warm up/cool down for that realy, maybe like 45 mins walking or somthing. I dunno. I see him Aug 7th for the MUGA and I guess I will talk to him more then.

His answer realy bugs me, and worries me. :(

You see I have been rejected non-stop by zillions of life insurance angencys for coverage cause of my heart thingy (Left Bundle Branch Block + Low Ejection fraction). They all treat it like its a extremly serious thing, but Mr CardioDude has always been like "no worries man, its like just a thing, ya'know" (well not exactly... but thats the general gist..) and told me no treatment is needed just monitoring... but if thats true, why cant I get a little exercise in? :(

Maybe because he knows men tend to overexert themselves on treadmills??? I'm sure some walking would work, and it's good exercise, too. I wouldn't worry too much until you go see him.

I think he just wants to go over everything with you. That way, you'll know how to go about training safely for your condition.

Because the difference between walking and running, on the heart, is pretty darn big!

Good for you for calling. And for sticking to the walking. I know, it sucks. I'm with ya on wanting to do more. But there's no sense in hurting ourselves for it... trips to the ER just aren't worth it!

yes. absolutely yes. walking gets your heart rate up higher than sitting, higher than standing, higher than putzing around the house. (not necessarily higher than running around the house chasing a kid with a spilling cup of grape juice on new white carpet, however. :P )

... ok... I spent 5 minutes w/ google to get a better picture here ...

the walking - at a slow pace - is going to keep your heart muscle knowing that it needs regular demands, but not put very increased demands on it that would cause electric signal issues due to the bundle branch block (definitely don't want to do that - and you should think about whether what happened when running was from that). it will also keep the rest of your muscles in better shape (yes, even small amounts of non-strenuous exercise do this - there's chemical signalling for ya) which reduces the muscles need for oxygen, which helps your body function better despite getting less oxygenated blood than it might otherwise get due to a low EF.

yes, walking is just fine. you're not going for superman. :P

what I looked up noted that bundle branch block was an issue with electrical signaling between the different portions of the heart, sometimes exacerbated by exercise, causing the heart to beat out of sync because the electric impulse signal doesn't travel appropriately through the heart muscle and that can cause heart pain, fainting, or dizziness. (I only spent five minutes researching... forgive me if I read anything incorrectly.) when I read that, it reminded me of what you said about 'falling off' (I figured you never meant it literally of course). I didn't mean to imply that this *is* what happened, just that it's worth thinking about whether or not that was an issue while you were running the other day. the reading I did implied it usually wasn't a big issue, but I'm no doctor, and it came to mind.

DID I mention I HATE shoe shooping? I did try to get running shoes yesterday and I could not find a single pair to fit. I was able to find my "size" ( 9 1/2 - EEEE) but the heels felt like they sliding off, but in the 9's my big toe felt like it was scatching the front of the shoe every step. The width was a little snug, but I think it would stretch okay. I tried ever 4E I could find between 8 1/2 and 11 but none fit.

This is why I went to hiking boots to begin with.. they just fit better. :( BTW I have wieghed them, they are not bad.. only FOUR POUNDS :lol:

Well for a change I decided to be a typical male and disregaurd the docs restrcitons. :lol:

I started walking and realzied my "walking" speed was about 3.3 MPH, so I figure if I was doing that for 90 mins all spring, then 4.0 mph for 30 mins should be fine till my scan, so thats what I did. But was a bit harder this time, prbly cause I gave blood yesterday :lol: I stoped a few times and check my pulse and it was 125-130 everytime so I dont think I am pushing to hard. Think I will just do 30mins@4.0 M/W/F till the doc finds out...err I mean till my next heart scan. :)

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
