Starting to exercise
It feels like a distant memory but over a couple of months have past since my pacemaker was fitted and I'm now doing a couch to 5K running regime along with a some bike rides.
I've not pushed my heart to pre-implant levels yet, I am going to wait until I have a definite appointment with the cardiologist before I do that.
It's so tempting though to push it as I had run my fastest mile in many years (5mins 19secs) a few months before my PM was fitted but I know starting slowly is the best approach.
My resting heart rate has in the last month consistently kept dropping from what was about 62 to now 57. This is probably what my resting heart rate was at my peak of fitness last year so that all seems good.
I thought it would be nice to post some good news for those in their early stages of recovery.
Have a great weekend all.
