Ultrarunner fighting Atrial Fibrilation (AF)

This blog has pretty much always been about running ultras, mostly Hardrock. It still is but now it is also about running after AFib. I was forced to miss Hardrock in 2011 due to the onset of AF but my long term goal was to get back to running milers. And hopefully help any other runners with AF who stumble upon this site. I never made it into Hardrock in 2012, or 2013, or 2014. I didn't have a qualifier for 2015. I ran Fatdog in Canada instead. That was tough. I finished my 4th Hardrock in 2016 and now I'm back to try for the magical number 5.

If you want the history of my AF the heart problems all started back on May 25 2011: http://howmanysleeps.blogspot.com/2011/05/out-of-hardrock.html

Fat Ass going Soft aka Lard Ass

What's with this having water bags at Poor Mans Comrades? Why can't
people carry a bottle and fill it up when they see a tap, in true Fat
Ass style. No aid my arse. And why use up your crew credits on a
straight forward run like this. That would be like having crew at the
GC100. No way. Save them for something tough like GNW when you really
need someone out there. I hope they don't leave their empty bags on the
road. I had to pick up used Leppin wrappers on the trail at the Prom
recently. Not happy Jan. These runs are not fun runs. The spirit of
Fatass is as far removed from sanitised little water sachets as Bogong
is from the Blue Mountains. There'll be people running PMC in gorilla
suits soon.

No run today. Too tired. Weekly total of about 5km. Don't want to
overtrain. Upper body weights only. OMG I'm blogging.

Now this is funny. You have a blog; you get all riled up and shout from your little hobby horse . . . and noone gives a shit. This makes me smile :)
