Running and your heart
Running costs nothing and it’s one of the easiest ways to exercise and stay fit. I’m a big fan, and in a shameless plug, I will use this post as an excuse to remind you that I am running in the Weymouth Half Marathon on March 20th 2022 in aid of the excellent Dorset County Hospital Charity. Please do support me on my fundraising page here:- https://www.justgiving.com/team/DCHfastandfurious?utm_source=Sharethis&utm_medium=team&utm_content=DCHfastandfurious&utm_campaign=pfp-email&utm_term=09a0d9a6aa4d4e939bbf7ded2e7b9f84
They do wonderful work.
Obviously running half marathon isn’t for everyone, and for someone with a heart problem the thought of running any distance might be terrifying, but it need not be, provided you do it in a way that suits you, and take the right approach. Whether you want to get started with gentle running, or ran before a heart event, and want to get back into it, then check out the British Heart Foundation page on how to get running – it has some sensible advice.
