well.. I got my test results back from the Dr office today. Good news.. all my tests (heart monitor, ekg, and blood work) are all normal!
Now.. I am left with assuming my low blood pressure is a result of something I am not getting enough of in my diet. I have increased my salt intake and when I go for a run instead of water I drink a triple dose of Gatorade (I put three scoops of powder to one 20 oz bottle of water).... so far that seems to be helping a LOT... but I wanted to ask..
anyone else out there have issues with low blood pressure? I have read on some running sites about people passing out when finishing a run because of low pressure.. and frankly this scares me....
I would love your thoughts, suggestions, and maybe websites I could ponder to find a solution..
I will go to visit with the Dr tomorrow.. will be asking to be refered to a nutritionist... preferably a sports nutritionist..... (is there such a thing?)....
I also will be running my half marathon on Friday. yikes... what to eat.. how much... will i make it... will i pass out at the end?
