Hello! I'm a 6ft 2" 24 year old male, I used to be extremely fit from 15 - 19, played rugby for my college and swam very regularly as well as played football 5 times a week with friends. However, when I was 20 I broke my right ankle as well as tore all the ligaments around my ankle and partial tear in my Achilles tendon! I couldn't exercise for a VERY long time, then i got used to the sedentary lifestyle and spent my time at work, then at home I'd play video games / watch t.v and eat rubbish. Anyway, the lack of exercise was horrible! Not only did it diminish every aspect of my health, but not using my ankle and foot enough has made it heal very a bit oddly and I can't extend it well so I run like a 4 year old girl with my legs flailing like an idiot... lol
ANYWAY, I've had enough of it, and 3 days ago I started C25K and a beginner yoga thing to help my flexibility of my muscles since i haven't really used them in 4 years. I Quit smoking 7 months ago, I'm drinking only water and green tea, cutting all sugar (except from fruits).
I start my day with daily yoga (whichever 15-20 min routine I have on the program). Then mid afternoon I do a Prerun 10 minute stretch with yoga poses, do the C25K run, 15 minute Post run Stretches. Then In the evening I do another 15-20 minute yoga sessions which is either a breathing and stretch exercise or something similar.
So, first day went better than I thought with C25K, I managed to do all of it, but I walked half of the last 60 seconds run, my chest was SO SORE, but I think that was actually from opening out my constricted chest muscles to be honest.
2nd Day I did the Yoga and then walked fast for 30 mins then did the other yoga.
3rd Day (today) I did the C25K day 2 week 1 with the yoga too, did it all, had a good time with it and felt great afterwards, (got a lot of pain in my side though which I had to sort of stretch out as I was on the walking parts, was REALLY painful). Got home did the yoga again.
Now as I'm typing this, it's been about 1 hour since my day 2 work out, I've had some green tea, but now I have a tightness in upper abdominal (minor tightness) and a sort of tight chest... now this was kind of expected, however, when i take a moderately deep rbeath or a very deep breath it *tickles*, like a tickle cough, then chest is a little tighter and I need to cough!
Then when I cough I get a pressure in my sinus' and a headache for 4-5 seconds.
Anyone know what this might be??
