    Moderation is probably key here. Better to run than do nothing, be fat, have high blood pressure, diabetes and sleep apnea.

    Cool link.

    But...

    I'll keep running. Got a 100k coming up in a few months. Can't rest too much now.

    There is a difference between an endurance athlete who spends many(10+) hours per week in an elevated heartrate and an athlete using aerobic exercise for sports performance. The same way that anaerobic training increases the cardiac wall thickness is a bad thing, the opposite direction also has drawbacks.

    For some reason, this is the opposite for me. I sometimes get arrhythmias, but I only get the arrhythmias on heavy lifting days. I also usually only get them a few hours after I'm done lifting; never while I'm actually working out.
