Thought I'd try the couch to 5k app for two reasons. 1 I need to get fitter, I'm overweight and pushing 40! and 2, I suffer a bit from Health Anxiety and everything you read suggest that exercise is good for that too. However I went running W1D1 and to be honest I struggled I think I missed the 3rd 60 second stint as still hadn't got my breath form the other runs. The last stint I think the jog was more of a walk to be honest. Anyway after the warm down at the end I sat in the chair and felt dizzy my chest felt unusual, I thought this is not good for me I'm not doing this again and braced myself for 30 minutes awaiting the heart attack to occur. Because I suffer anxiety induced chest pain this is hard to overcome. Ok so convinced myself that I'm never doing this again. However this morning I woke up still feeling light headed. I don't ache that much but really want to do this for me and my mental hurdles. Hope this makes sense and wondered if anyone had some similar experiences.
