Okay, let’s just admit it, most of us are exercising addicts. I am for sure. I wrote a post a couple years ago about exercise and your heart. I’ve already written a couple posts about this, but it needs to be common knowledge for all of us.
Long term and extreme exercise can be dangerous to our hearts. We need to be cognizant of the potential issues this can involve.
Here is a link to an audio show on NPR last week, with Dr. James O’Keefe. I went to see Dr. O’Keefe a couple years ago and he is a smart guy. And what he is reporting here is not something that comes easy for him. He would like to be telling us that the more hard, endurance exercise we all do is good for us. But that isn’t the case, according to the studies he’s gathered. It might not be what we all want to hear or how we plan to live our lives, but we need to understand the issues involved in “excessive” endurance exercise.
If you have some extra time this morning, you should listen to the audio show and make up your own mind. Have a great Saturday morning.
