It's done by a low dose CT scan, and although insurance typically won't cover it, the cash pay (in my area at least) is typically $150-200. It's worthy of consideration. If your score is zero, you are at extremely low risk and need not worry.

I doubt if my doctor ever heard of a CAC score. She's an idiot, plain and simple. But she's what the system gave me. Hopefully she rotates out at some point. During her vacation we actually get some thoughtful care.

I had a bit of bone in one of my carotids picked up on a neck CT many years ago. Bit of a "yikes" moment.

How does one get bone in a carotids?

150 minutes? Buahahaha.

All my life I'm told to exercise. I retake up cycling and now exercise is bad for me? Oh fiddlesticks!

Later, when Clapton released his version, one of my friends didn't like it because he felt it was disrespectful to Hendrix, or something.

Pretty sure when Stevie Ray first came out he said his life's ambition was to play like Hendrix.

Yeah. I really like his version of Little Wing. Frankly for me it's a toss up between his and Hendrix's.

Either way, there should be plenty of cycling involved, I hope.

Hawaii is awesome. I assume Spain is as well but have never been.

Years ago, I worked with a guy who was so bummed by SRV's untimely death that he said he almost wished it had been him instead. I went out and bought a couple SRV CDs, and after listening to him, I told him I agreed that I'd rather it was him than SRV.

My parents loved Spain for the scenery and the people, but not the food.

Garmin has that as a benchmark to try to hit. Yes, itís usually finished on Monday, when the week starts.

I've been on the bike around 15 hours per week lately. Not sure how much of that is moderate or intense. And some of it is sitting around. This past Saturday I'm sure there were more than 75 minutes of intense.

I could be a case study of what not to do.

Just had the CD on the car the other day. Doesn't sound like that at all to me.

At least to Garmin, itís HR - Iíll sometimes get a few minutes of ďmoderateĒ at the start of a workout.

That's just a reference to the calcium deposition. There, as in the coronaries, it's a tissue response to some kind of stress, presumably inflammation. Maybe brother @datlas knows more.

Yeah, moderation in all things. **** that for a game of soldiers!

Compulsive exercise is undoubtedly less risky and better for my relationships than what I would be doing otherwise!

I go by how much I'm bleeding out of my eyes. That counts as intense.

Way better than would happen to my mental health without.

I loved the food in Spain but I admit that I was mainly in coastal towns with fresh seafood.
