Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/16/2013 -- Training for a marathon doesn't just make running the race easier. Adequate training prior to a marathon also means less stress on the runners heart after the race.
A recent study published in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology, measured the heart function of 20 regular runners during marathon training, after a marathon and three months after the race.
Findings showed that after the marathon the runners hearts showed higher levels of stress than during training. Those signs of stress were gone at the 3 month post race testing.
The study also indicates that training lowers this risk. “An important finding is that runners who were less prepared (lower weekly mileage/time at peak training and lower fitness/VO2max) had greater changes,” said Larose.
