Cardio - How To Get Started ?

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 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. :)

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
