So, I can now officially say it - I am a runner! A baby-beginning runner, but a runner nonetheless. I sucked up my anxiety issues and went to the gym this morning! Day 1 of C25K. Congratulations, me.
But the question I have. I was running this morning, then when I finished my workout, after the cooldown, when the treadmill stopped and I stepped off, I was really wobbly on my feet. Almost dizzy, but not really *dizzy*, just feeling...if any of you are sailors, it was almost the same feeling as when you've been on a long sail and come back ashore, you know how the ground kind of rolls so you feel like you're still on the water? It was like that, only the ground kept moving like I was still on the treadmill. It was a very weird feeling.
Does anyone else get this? Does it fade over time once you get used to the treadmill - note, I have not ever worked out on a treadmill, even two years ago when I used to go to the gym on a semiregular basis I used the elliptical - and if so, any ideas on how long it'll take?
I was able to camouflage it pretty well, I've gotten very good at being able to show no outward signs of anything out of the ordinary no matter how I'm feeling - don't ask why - but it was really unnerving to try to walk in a steady straight line over to the stretching area without stumbling over the ground that was moving under my feet.
