Customer Question
After a slow three mile...
After a slow three mile run last evening, I felt like I had run 20 miles. I was hammered. It took about an hour to recovery. Also my face and my upper torso were flush red. It seemed my heart rate was above my normal resting rate during the recovery time. During the run I was having a hard time catching my wind. Because of this, it was a slow, short but strenuous jog. I have been running about 4 miles every other day for four months. I am 56-yrs-old, 5'10 and 170pds. Should I get checked out or is it too late for anyone to figure out what might of been going on.

Hi there,

You should take this experience seriously and go for a check up, if you don't get symptoms of a common cold within three days after this run. A viral infection can decrease physical fitness before it shows other symptoms.

Do you have any other medical conditions?

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
