I am not a marathon runner, but I have been a distance cycler for years -- and love it. Wondering if I should worry about this... I found this story very interesting and am curious if this is just an article or if there is science out there supporting this.
...extreme endurance training can cause structural damage to the heart and arteries...

I had an "aha" moment a few years ago when I realized that pretty much all the people in my life when I was growing up would take a break from work by sitting down. So, I have made it my lifestyle to take a break from work by standing up and moving around! In my office, the offices are all around the perimeter of the building and the elevators and restrooms are in the center -- makes for a nice loop "track" --- I find it clears my mind and clarifies my thinking to get up and take a 10 minute break by walking some laps mid-morning and mid-afternoon. It makes me a more productive thinker and that is what I get paid to do!

Once an hour I walk between the 2 buildings to clear my head and get my body moving. I always wear a pedometer to work, and make sure I get half of my daily steps before I go home for my evening exercise.
