Heart of Tone
A new book is the first to address heart conditions in endurance athletes, which can be tough for doctors to understand and diagnose. The Haywire Heart ($25, velopress.com) presents current research and explores the warning signs, such as…
- a racing heart that won’t stop
- a chest pressure or pain that may worsen during exercise
- labored breathing compared to your effort level
- fainting or nearly so–beyond lightheaded
…so you can learn how to recognize and reduce your risk of heart issues.
