Depends : First off, let me congratulate you on having an active & healthy lifestyle. Depends on your cholesterol level & if you have occult CAD which nearly 50% of white males do by age 50. Talk to your physician about appropriate screening & consider a coronary calcium screening test. Keep up the good work!
