I had a heart attack several months ago.
Hopefully, you incurred no coronary blockage.
I got back into running and have ran several 5k races and about to run a half marathon.
Often registrants are required to sign a medical attestation or waiver that releases the sponsors from liability.
That is definitely not extreme.
5k or half-marathon is quite a lot for folks without a cardiac condition. Consult your physician and follow medical advice.
!00% blockage damn near killed me. Stent put in.
I sign releases for every race. I ran the first one 2 months after the heart attack. I do not recommend it for anyone else without advice from a doctor.
My doctor is onboard with the running and the half marathon.
I meant not extreme compared to jumping out of an airplane or snowboarding down a mountain with a camera strapped to a helmet or lots of action.
