Earlier this week I had the chance to chat with John Newsom and Bevan Eyles at IMTalk for a segment on an upcoming podcast. Their weekly show originates from Christchurch, NZ and focuses on long-distance triathlon.
When the podcast is available, around August 20th, I’ll put the link here.
We talked about heart health and endurance sport and some of the new information about heart problems that might be caused by too much exercise. We also touched on last year’s report from USA Triathlon about race-related fatalities. Two other recent podcasts in their series contained a segment with Dr. Tamsin Lewis, a doctor and professional triathlete, and a segment with Dr. Douglas Scott, a cardiologist and elite age-grouper. Both segments are devoted to heart issues and are worthwhile listening.
