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.
