    Thank you Canuck!

    I'm not very fit yet. I used to be. I'm 5'3'' 110 lbs, lean not skinny. I've strated jogging again a few monts ago and love it like I used to. My guess, after reading about a few things so far, is dehydration. I've never experienced this before so I don't think it's a heart thing. Better not be. I think it was too hot and humid outside for me. The change in temperature is very drastic. I will be very careful next time I run in hot/humid weather.

    And, I have very low blood pressure. Don't know what to do about it. My Dr always jokes about it: I don't know how you can stand up! She says... but no tips on how to improve it!

    I think it's the lack of junk food. You need more pizza and donuts. Lord knows that if you start eating real food that it's a risky venture and anything negative that happens to you healthwise after such a reckless endangerment of your health MUST be to blame. Get some cookies and McDonald's in you right away!

    Please, share your toughts/advice.

    I lived in Florida for a few years & found that humid weather, particularly Hot Humid Weather just sucked the energy right out of me and seemed to lead to dehydration (sweating) really fast so my guess would be that it may be a lot to do with that,
    ie dehydration & loss of electrolytes.
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    It happened to you?
    Please share!
    I feel like an idiot who can't take good care of herself. I shouldn't have put myself at risk for it. I should know better.

    I don't tolerate hot weather to begin with. I have low blood pressure, I think it has something to do with it. I feel exaclty the same, hot humid weather sucks the energy right out of me too!

    I run the same as you, a super fast 5k and occasionally I wind up sick as a dog, dizzy, nauseous and freaked out what is going on with my body. It sure does not feel like dehydration while your going through it but turns out that is why.

    But I felt fine while running... never tought I would be so sick a few minutes after. It was very bad in an instant. Went from feeling good to very bad. I never want to experience that again. Will work on building muscle indoors when it's hot and humid.

    Oh, yes, thanks for mentionning it, I was freaked out too!
