I'm 66, and I was really healthy. A month ago I ran six days a week - at least 10k a day. I also went to to the gym three or four days a week to do resistance training. Then I had a heart attack followed immediately by three cardiac arrests. Thanks to the very prompt action of my wife in calling an ambulance, and the ambulance in getting to me within minutes, I am still here to tell the tale. I have had a stent and an ICD fitted.
I have been told that if I wasn't so healthy, I wouldn't have survived.
I am now very keen to get back to my exercising, but I am getting conflicting advice as to how quickly, and how much exercising I should do. I obviously don't want to do anything to endanger myself, but I am itching to get my running shoes on again. At the moment, I am just walking 4 or 5k a day.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how much I can safely do. I actually feel fine, and i have been told that I don't have any underlying problems.
