7. Bad genetics can really foul up a person regardless of their lifestyle.
With my family history, I decided that I would be the one that would avoid heart disease by exercising so much that there would be no way to get heart disease.

Genetics 1.... Exercise 0

Oh well, at least I'm still alive after two MI's. The Dr's. all say that it's because I did exercise so much so that my heart was strong enough to survive. I had an older brother who didn't make it past 35 and another brother who lives on Nitro pills so I guess that I'm lucky.

I find out on May 18 whether I can resume bicycling or if there's too much damage after this latest MI.

I might have to change my ID depending on the outcome. Altoid Ex-Cyclist has a nice ring to it I guess.

:hi:
