Ejection Fraction
I am 47 years old.  I recenty had a stress test that showed my LV ejection fraction was 41%.

I don't have any symptoms and have no history of heart issues.  My stress test time was 18:01 with a peak HR of 169 and peak BP of 240/72.  

I have been training for and competing in triathlons for the past two years and ran a marathon last month.  I enjoy the exercise and the physical conditioning.

I have recently started taking Lisinopril.

Based on the above information do you see any risk in high level training (swim, bike, run and weights)?

Hi there.  Only your doctor can advise on risk, but typically if you are as symptom-free as you are and your EF is stable, exercise is encouraged.  Lisinopril is a great medication and should help improve or at least stabilize your EF.  Ask your doctor about your exercise specifics though, I think it is important to discuss this with someone familiar with your condition.

I'm curious why you had a stress test, giving that you state you have no symptoms and no history of heart issues?  I'm just nosy!  I would get a cardiologist and ask them about your training regime.
