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.

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 do you mean? :huh:

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. :)

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
