that's true, i guess that is a natural tendency.

but honestly I am 99.9% sure it was because I hadn't eaten properly that day.

Just so it's not a recurring thing...BTW, you're not pregnant are you? My wife had a similar episode when she was something like 1 month along...

Oh my gosh, thanks for everyone's concern, but it really was just because all I had that day was coffee and about 50 cals worth of candy. By that point it was the evening and I was running on empty.

So I know it's my own darn fault. :)

And I must be doing something wrong because I usually DON'T feel like fainting after lifting a warm up set...but it seems like people are saying this is normal? Seriously, you guys go around fainting in the gym?? Guess I'm not hardcore. :P

It not normal after a warmup set but if I am doing near max loads I always feel dizzy for a bit between sets.

I wouldn't call it normal. It does sound like maybe a dip in blood sugar level/low blood pressure. You mentioned that you weren't eating properly that day. I would probably chalk it up to that.

If it would happen more than once, I may be inclined to check into it. I don't get dizzy when doing any of my lifts. warm-up or heavy.

sounds like a nutrition issue... or maybe the thing katz asked you about :D i keep a couple lollipops, a gel, and a larabar in m workout bag in case something like that happens to me, it usually takes care of it.

Yeah, that. :mrgreen:

You haven't had any weird cravings have you? Ice cream & pickles, for example...

Haha, no, like I said, I am 99.9% sure it was because I hadn't eaten that day.


Anyway, just posting to say that I am still alive. Just really stressed out trying to plan the move and deal with all of the b.s. that comes up with an international move. Especially when I'm not the one at home to be organizing things. Long stories. Anyway, I'm frazzled and getting kind of depressed/really lonely here. I enjoyed Ottawa for the first month or so, but now the isolation is setting in. I am sick of living out of a suitcase and just want to feel like I have a home again. Which I will, soon enough. Headed down to Cali on Oct 3rd. Due to visa issues husband won't be joining me until Oct 16th. It will have been almost 3 months that we've been living apart, which is really starting to wear me down. I've never done the long distance thing and I certainly don't like it.

seriously try to get through it, it will be over soon. It's a tough situation but there isn't much you can do about it, so do what you can do and it will all get worked out.

Did you find out anything about what's going on with your knee yet? Hope all is going well with the move and you'll soon be able to return to your regular endurance training ways!
