Skipping Heart Beat

My heart skips a beat about every 70 to 90 seconds and I experience a flutter in my chest. I am training to get a marathon qualifier for the 2010 comrades Maritzburg to Durban down run. Am I endangering my health or am I being paranoid? I also don''t fall asleep easily. I take iron tablets to help my breathing.
