Cheers Wheeze, yes my Grandfather and my Mum suffered with it, plus her sister and brothers, all unfortunately succumbed to issues closely associated with High BP, my Dad also has it although he’s on medication and still going strong at 80 even after a life spent eating red meat and no fruit plus 40 a day up until he was 60
I think your situation and mine shows that it’s worth a check for all of more ‘senior’ runners the tendency will be for us to crack on as we feel great until something hits us between the eyes, it was only my faint that made me go to the doc, I’d still be happily oblivious without my visit and will take whatever advice the doc gives me at the end of the week.
