So I finally got around to seeing a Cardiologist for screening before I do my first Ironman in a few months. I've done numerous 70.3s and marathons and 6-foot track, but I was mindful of the full day nature of ironman so thought I should be careful. Never had any problems, apart from slightly elevated BP which I take meds for. Resting HR, like most of you, is usually 40. ECGs, cholesterol etc etc all normal. I've always been told I had a big heart on chest xrays, or cardiomegaly, which was first picked up when I joined the RAAF, but was always told that this was because I was running 80-100ks
