I'm now 7 weeks post-pacemaker implant, which was done to prevent blackouts I was suffering due to low resting heart rate. It only kicks in if heart rate drops below 50bpm.
I'm a very keen cyclist, 33 years old. I was in good shape before this but lack of training over last 3-4 months is starting to show and I want to get back to full fitness.
Now that the device is in and has been checked my doctor has basically said I can start to train to get back to where I was fitness-wise to get back to partaking in endurance events but I still feel very aware of my breathing/pacemaker/heartbeat etc and therefore a bit nervous about getting back to normal.
From other's experience of getting back to a strenuous training regime, should I have any concerns about potentially 'over-doing it'? Or am I overthinking things and just need to get on with it?!
