Overheated?

Hello friends!

I’m glad everyone feels like rock-star bursting out in song and dance when they receive a nice comment from a reader 🙂 I thought I was the only one, haha.

Something really weird happened to me last night while I was running and I wanted to share to see if this has ever happened to anyone else.  This has happened to my once before, when I wasn’t running, so it might not be running related.

I walked into the gym last night, ready to crank out my five miles, but it was hot… like oppressively hot.  I changed and hopped onto the treadmill anyway.  Around the third mile I started to feel really weird, like overly sweaty and weak in the knees.  So I slowed down to a walking pace and tried to figure out what was going on.  I couldn’t catch my breath, and then the room started to spin.  At this point I stopped the treadmill and started walking towards the locker room, yea I didn’t make it.  I found a chair and sat down for a good five minutes.  Everything was soaked in sweat (tmi? maybe), and slowly but surely I regained my breath and the room stopped spinning.  But I was really terrified, and there was no one at the gym that I knew (hubby was meeting me later to lift).

I was completely fine a few minutes later and was able to drive home, but has this happened to anyone before?  Does anyone know what could have caused it? I am thinking I just overheated…. and I know I had enough calories, but maybe I was lacking water? I just hope it doesn’t happen again.

Have a lovely day!

    Heeeey-

    so that has definitely happened to me…really lightheaded, weak, my eyes go kinda funny. It could definitely be a combination of overheated and dehydration…and when you are dehydrated your blood pressure drops, which would explain the dizziness and weakness. Just a thought….
