I hope I'm posting this in the right place, if not- I apologize.
I recently became inspired to try the Couch To 5k program.
I started a few days ago and I'm really enjoying it.
I get up and do it before work, and on the "rest" days I take a simple walk.
My issue is that today when I finished I got home and
felt awful. Really terrible. I had to sit down in the shower, I felt like I might
throw up. My limbs felt heavy and weird and the "about to pass out" feeling lasted for 45 minutes.
I ate some cottage cheese and that sorta helped, but I'm not sure if it was the food or simply the passing of time that helped me feel better.
Also, I'm not extremely out of shape- I've exercised at my highest weights and am generally an active person.
The only times I've ever passed out was when I was trying out the sauna at my gym. Apparently sauna's aren't a good choice for me.
So, was I possibly just too hot? Or should I have eaten first?
Any help or advice would be appreciated!
