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 with AF. I was forced to miss Hardrock in 2011 due to my AF but my long term goal was to get back to a level where I could enter the lottery for 2012. 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 qual for 2015. I ran Fatdog in Canada instead. That was tough. Now back to Hardrock.

The heart problems all started back on May 25: http://howmanysleeps.blogspot.com/2011/05/out-of-hardrock.html

6' build up

My sore glutes deteriorated tonight on an easy run. I had to stop and
all I could think of was that Dog was sticking a needle into the arse
of his Whippet doll. Damn. I was feeling so good. My main concern had
been shoe selection. Now it's injury concerns. I was going for a long
trail run tomorrow to break in a new pair on Leonas but I am not
going to waste them if I am going to be hampered by injury next week.
And I can't afford to risk exacerbating it. Maybe I should skip 6'?
Or drop back into a slower wave and just jog through? Bugger.

Blue Dog has been training the house down to beat Mellum. 150km weeks have become his diet. Sub 37:30 and a PB at Striders 10km last week. He will be carbo loading on a diet of rusty nails this week to make sure he beats you guys.
