    So I gathered more data yesterday. Did a 4 mile fell race setting strict limits on my heart rate with a monitor. 160 is my max so I kept the rate at 140. That put me right at the back of the field on the ascent but I passed a few on the way back. Felt comfortable all the way. And it was nice. Saw me old pals. Saw the hills. Now I just need to ask cardiologist if this counts as avoiding extreme exercise!!

    That sounds good to me Wheeze. Just don't be tempted to overdo it!

    You have made me smile very warmly Wheese. You're delightfully incorrigible - true fell runner's spirt, through and through. Just keep taking a very measured approach and follow the best advice you personally trust.

    Pity you live in Wales and not the Dales Wheeze.

    The BOFRA series would be perfect for your new found fun.

    Yes, a 2-mile sprint up and down some impossibly steep jumble of scree and tussocks would be ideal for triggering a "cardiac event".

    He is running to a max HR so that would control the pace.
