Treadmill Stress Test.
I had 2 lovely ladies who got me in a hospital gown, Bleck, and hooked me up to a 12 lead EKG strapping the holder around my waist.
Hopped on the treadmill and every 3 min the Treadmill would increase incline and speed. Every So often I got my BP checked as well. Sweating and hot as this is a little room nestled in the back of the cardiology office, I reached 85% Max Heart Rate at 5.2 mph with a incline of 16% after 15min. Phew! Within 3 min my heart rate was back down to 68. The nurses looked at me and said, you will have no problem with your Ironman.
I knew this going into my stress test but I wanted to make sure I wasn't going to have any medical issues going into training or during the race. I have a clean bill of health now and ready to rock! Not that I haven't been keeping up with my training anyways.
So there you have it!! P.S I got new Saucony Fastwitch 5's in the mail! So excited! Ill be doing a review tomorrow!
