Then one day I decided I needed to really work out my legs on the leg press machine. After a set of struggling with an extra heavy weight, my heart started racing, I got really light-headed and dizzy, and I was really nauseated. Very, very unpleasant. I didn't get medically evaluated afterwards, but I definitely took it easier on workouts for the next couple of weeks. I don't think GERD had anything to do with what happened to me. That diagnosis is something I got a couple decades later. I think I just pushed too hard before my body had time to adapt to a metabolically challenging exercise program.
Ugh. That was probably 30 years ago, and it's still distasteful to just think about it.
Yep, I'm ok, but I felt somewhat nasty for about 2-3 minutes after interrupting my stappers. I will get a medical check, just in case, and I'll make the following modifications to my workout:
1) I won't repeat the undulating block for the next workout (1st class), because I feel that 8 weeks of undulating block is just too much.
2) I will limit myself to just 6-10 minutes of stappers, until they feel comfortable. Then inch my way up.
3) I will not skip another workout day. I feel like I've gotten a bit out of shape. With all the snow and "winter blues" , that always gets to me, I kinda lost my appetite for working out. But that's gone now, and I'm back on track, working ever other day, just like before. So it's one more undulating block day, starting tomorrow and then it's on to the next program.
I will finish this book!
