It would be grateful if some one could help me to understand ''....set my heart pounding''.

I just figure out that something has provoked my heart beating, but I doubt if it s due to a good thing such excitement, enthusiasm..or it is related to an bad one such as an appalling experience....or it both of them?

I am looking forward to your replies

    It can be all of those things - please supply some context :)

    :confused:
    I could say for example than getting news from Internet set my heart pounding because they are brought into life. I just wanna write that in an article for my English class, but I want to make it clear that my heart is pounding for any kind of news, for the appalling ones and good ones.

    thanks!

    Ok, in that case it should be fine- if you don't specify what the news is, it could be either good or bad.
