Oh gosh. Should I really be doing 200 pushups a day? That can be fairly high intensity. Well, I guess I've gotten away with it so far.

Thanks Dave. One more nugget.

My whole reason for seeking out this community was to get information on what intensity I could participate in running races in my future as a valve patient. What I have found is that there is not much known on the safety of "red lining" effort for us. So I am proceeding with some caution, but realizing I may be erring on the side of too much.

It took me a few years before I had the guts to "red line" again. I ran many races, but always at an easy pace. Whereas I had been running 5K in about 21 minutes prior to AVR, I never ran one faster than about 25 after and more often 30ish.

After 3 years and maybe 30 races post AVR, I returned to track running again. The 800m or 1 mile are truly red line events. I've run more than 50 1 mile races since.

I would love to "red line" it again, but my legs just don't turn over fast enough anymore. I guess old age just naturally puts more brakes on my running than anything the medical community could rectify.

Interesting video. Yes, I'm also VERY interested in how much effort is too much effort. Also being a valve patient (a relatively young one at that) - I've been told that my age alone will wear out my valve sooner than if I were say.... 60 years old. I can only imagine what hard exercise does to it - but that's just my imagination.....as was mentioned above - no one knows!!!!

On one hand I'm not willing to stop living my life the way I've been accustom to living it - on the other hand - I'm not in a hurry to rush in for another re-do in the near future. (I also don't want to get into tissue vs mech here......I made my choice - I'm happy with my choice and IMO I think the whole thing is a gamble either way....I've decided that there are no guarantees regardless)

So as far as "red-lining it" I'm erring on the side of caution.....running yes - racing no.

My HS coach would always asking me what I was saving it for. I never had a defensible response to that query. Still don't.
