    SVT ; who’s had it ; had the op ?

    Hi All long time no post - but like similar assertions about the current state of the forum ; there is a huge body of knowledge and opinion available here. so it’s the learned and opioniinated tranny crew that I turn for input when I need it.... with that out of the way ; have any of you (or any one close to you) been diagnosed with SVT ? did you learn to live with it ; did you have the op (ablation) ? perhaps even return to racing ? in short I first noticed by heart rate spike by 20 beats at a race in st kilda in April. a stress test with cardiologist and subsequent visit to another ( electrical specialist) in May lead to a diagnosis of svt. i got the ok to keep training & race my event. but truth be told knowing I had this condition really played with my head and hampered by training. in recent weeks I have had two more events in training and racing the world champs on Sunday I had another short one whilst on the blue carpet. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supraventricular_tachycardia two days after that race ; i’m still unsure what to do.... back off or get the op done and hope to go back to where I was a year ago... even though I’ve been going around since 1991 ; I think I still do want to race up to 70.3 distance at some point in the future. certainly want to train and keep fit. Still got the stoke like it’s my rookie year, even after all this time. anyone been here before ????? Thnaks all.

    Tells me they are in & against all odds. They being plantar fasciitis, shingles , over estimation of ability and poor race selection ( based on low intellect). Also turns out 1 or 2 ahead of them where not in contention...hardly deserves a slot uh.

    Agree but are we assuming that prior participation is a positive? and is it the third criteria is used sequentially if the first @ second can’t split them ? thats my point of confusion do all 4 points get factored in simultaneously or sequentialy ....

    So good folk of transitions ; riddle me this........ Racer P and racer B are tied in 25th position on 47 points. Racer B : 15,14,17,8 Racer P: 19,8,2,16,11 The rule book states that in this situation the following criteria apply in priority order: The athlete that has competed in the most number of events The highest placing in any individual event The athlete who was most recently an age group WC competitor The athlete who in the opinion of the selection committee has the greater chance of placing higher in the 210 WC Given data to support points 3 & 4 are unknown for both - if the first two are known then do the last two criteria apply ? Who in your opinion would get the nod - or is more data needed ?

    Standard distance points updates - do they normally keep to these timings or are they just a target ?
