Wanting to run again despite having an ICD
I am a 58 yr male that has had 2 heart attacks and VTach with an EF of 28. I also have RA I had an ICD implanted 2 years ago.
I used to be a long distance runner and completed several marathons. While not realistically thinking this is in the cards I would like to run again. Walking is OK but I long to be able to run again. My Cardiologist has encouraged me to exercise. It has been nearly 8 years since the last time I ran any distance. It's like an itch that I can't scratch.
Am I fooling myself? Any one offer any encouragement? Thanks
