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

Brindy or not to Brindy?

Ran tired tonight. But was more concerned about my knee. It was OK on
the run but has been worrying me all day at work. And to make matters
worse my boss has come back from leave and I'm sure he's mashed his
meniscus. Too close to home......
I have to lodge my entry tomorrow if I'm going to Brindabella. Where
are those dice?

Hey Andrew, late entries are allowed on the day, rest up see how the knee pulls up and decide at the last minute, you've got a week and a half, hope you make it mate.

You could always take the soft option and do the half in the Bull's Head Challenge.

Perhaps if you could refrain from using fancy words like intra-articular and meniscus I could make sense of things.
