Well i finshed this morning for 1st time and when i got home i was lightheaded and dizzy for around a half hour afterwards and some tingling in extremities. It was very uncomfortable. Did i do too much for my 1st go? I'n Still 195 lbs and 5' 9, and on high blood pressure meds. Maybe take the meds a couple hours b4 running? Anyone have any suggestions? sorry this is my 1st post but i want people to get an idea of what im doing. Its like posting all your computer specs on a computer help forum :P thx for your patience.
