Longer Running Can Damage Heart

June 22nd, 2014 — 11:59pm

With so much hype around the world for marathon running, health experts have said that running for long period of time, especially marathon like races can cause serious cardiac ailments to people. Once cropped up, these maladies can sustain for a lifetime period, warn the physicians. Acceding to a recent survey, those who are eyeing to get a leaner look by taking part in several marathon race events often end up with having pacemakers when they start aging and the number of such people is increasing with each day, say the doctors. Funded by the British Heart Foundation, this study was initially tested on mice, it showed that excessive running may bring changes in body but also affects the electrical pulse rate of the heart, at the same time, it also causes the super fit to suffer from various abnormal heart rhythms. Athletes who have taken retirement after being involved in sports like marathon are often being diagnosed with either rapid or erratic heartbeat which is medically termed as arrhythmias.

According to scientists molecular changes in the heart due to excessive training cause such problems if not diagnosed in time, it can lead to serious heart ailments and even death. For normal adults the ideal heart beat should be around 60-100 per minute. But for the marathon athletes this calculation changes hugely and comes to around 30 per minute. Danger comes when this rate goes down further at night. Similar problems are often faced by the cyclists also. Famous cyclists like Miguel Indurain and Sir Chris Hoy, were diagnosed with really low heart beats. Both the athletes never had more than 28 heart beat per minute when they took retirement from their game. Scientists say that running affect the nervous system of the body and it is the nervous system which is responsible for control of heat’s pacemaker.

Nashville’s running community in shock

February 28th, 2014 — 5:21pm

On 15th January, over two hundred stalwarts of East Nasty Running Club, equipped with ponytails, dogs as well as reflective running vests, choked off the sidewalks near eleventh and Holly streets like they do it on every Wednesday in East Nashville – whether it shines or rains. Before flooding 5 points nightspots, they huddled together for warmth in below freezing temperatures.

Still, the chill regarding the proceedings was not only weather. 5 days earlier, a leading news agency had reported that about the allegations of misuse of charity funds that involves a Nashville region triathlon coach, an endurance athlete known within the running community of the city.

In 2012’s December, following Sandy Hook Elementary shooting incident, Robbie Bruce as well as others established the non-profit 26.4.26 Foundation. The primary idea, which was highly celebrated in the media, was that the runners in the marathon would hook donations for the twenty six mile runs, along with payoffs going to back Sandy Hook’s 26 victims’ families.

Even though that organization raised over US$ 100000, but as per a leading website, just US$ 30000 had been delivered as of now. Mark Miller, the East Nasty president, who knew Bruce through the foundation like many other runners, told that he believes that people have to withhold judgment till all the facts come out. You are going to give your close friends the benefit of the doubt till you could not. He has not shown up and this is totally damning.
