This is interesting. During this year’s edition of the Oasis Montreal Marathon a participant suffered a heart attack and died later that afternoon. Some clients started pondering “how could this happen” “he was only 30 yrs old” . I often explain to people it’s not all that cut and dry when it comes to fitness. There could be any number of unknowns that this is attributed to from, actual heart health, nutrition, supplementation, etc. Still out of all the participants only one had this reaction. However it is not the first time this happens in a marathon, and now there’s a new study that says that “MARATHON TRAINING MAY POSE HEART RISK”
Just like any study, it’s far from perfect, but news is news and it gives us something to think about.
