Last night was a bit of a bummer. Midway through dryland training I had to stop because my irregular heartbeats decided to kick in. I’ll get them in two different ways–palpitations and a fluttering. Palpitations aren’t really a big deal but the fluttering is more worrisome because I get dizzy and that’s what happened last night.
Since I started lifting weights again, it’s come back more frequently. Not while I’m lifting but afterwards which is what happened years ago (and yes, I did see a cardiologist and get tested).
So what caused it last night? Who knows, it could be a number of things. On Tuesday I spent 7 1/2 hours at Wonderland on the hottest day of the year and ate crap amusement food (how can they make pizza taste bad?). Yesterday I wasn’t feeling 100% and didn’t eat as much throughout the day as I probably should have. Dinner was protein heavy, carb light. I’m sure all of this combined with the heat had something to do with it.
Not a huge deal but very frustrating.
On a good note, I was better on the one-legged jumping drill than I was last week. Even Hockey Playing Husband was all “you were doing great up until the point you thought you were going to die.”
Don’t think I didn’t notice that he didn’t come over to make sure I was still alive at any point during the rest of the dryland training.
Also, I probably owe M. and E. an apology for crushing the cones they use in the jumping drill. My hopping is better, my aim is not. I’ve started a ‘buy new cones’ fund using the change I get back after buying wine.
You should have about 100 new cones by next week.
