Hi Hiranya;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If the ECG is normal and does not show any changes of problem then it is surely normal ;no need to worry.As for the leftward axis it is a position of the axis of heart which is left or right in different persons and is not a problem or disease.So you cancontinue the exercise as usual .Still if you feel you can consult a Cardiologist for opinion and personal satisfaction.
