10 Ways Ironman Triathletes Can Avoid Chronic Cardio Self-Destruction   "But when the data of extreme endurance athletes was isolated, it was
found that the health effects of regular physical activity became less
pronounced, and were instead replaced by significant risk of heart

Specifically, completion of an event such as an Ironman triathlon (or
even a relatively shorter marathon) was shown to cause structural heart
changes and elevations of cardiac inflammatory biomarkers. Although
most of these health issues return to normal within one week, an
individual who is frequently competing in such events (as most
triathletes and runners do) can experience months and years of
repetitive cardiac injury, and this can lead to development of atrial
fibrosis, myocardial scarring, interventricular septum, and increased
susceptibility to atrial and ventricular arrhythmias."-

[Note:  I re-posted this article not because I expect anyone to do a triathlon, but because the recommended training methods to condition for these extremely long events is to workout less or use shorter distances so that the intensity level can be kept high.  Short, high intensity workouts….seems we've heard this somewhere before!]
