Day 5 has come quick!!!

its exciting to see changes!! FINALLY!! i have been needing this boost and change for a long while!

Iv had my ups and downs the past few days but today is the first day i actually didnt get any side effects! it was a nice change! i was positive all day and felt great about myself and my correct weight loss so far!

iv started my day with going to the gym early as i didn't have to start work till 2pm! had lots of energy as usual but I have a question to those that say "i could run a mile!"

OK... how is anyone capable to run on the treadmil while on duromine?!!

i tried 2nd day in and my chest was tight and was slight dizzy.. so i slowed my workout right down.. as a person who loves to run and now smoker free for the last 9 days!! Every time I'm on the treadmill i can only get up to 6.0kph!! without thinking about it, my chest doesn't get tight or my heart doesn't feel like its RACING and i dont feel breathless or dizzy! now, yes i was a casual smoker (meaning smoking on weekends only..) and i was never breathless unless i had a big night out before.. so feeling like this was really uncomfortable! I would love to run again but does anyone else get these side effects? if not what are you doing that i should be!!?? :p

Hey, I've never been really fit so I can't really answer your question about the running bit, but I'm walking at a brisk walk on the treadmill for about 40 minutes daily and even that is a bit of a struggle. I'm sweating like crazy and have to lower the speed at times because I feel like I can't keep up. I get the pounding heart thing too. I think it could also be to do with not consuming as many calories or something. Sorry, I don't think my reply helps much, but I hope you can get back into running. I know that I'm getting fitter just by seeing how much longer I can stay on the treadmill and intensify the incline etc .

Maybe it's a general exercise thing? I've found it super-hard to complete my normal workouts on weight training days, which I'd been doing consistently for a couple of months before starting D, and I've had to reduce sessions to several sets of one or two compound lifts only so I can actually get through it, which sucks.
:-(

On the other hand, had no problems walking 7km this morning, aside from my arthritic spine which is totally unrelated to the D, heh.

Maybe it's to do with higher intensity exercises being more taxing on our systems while on D? I dunno, I'd ask your doctor about it, I'm gonna ask mine at my appointment today about it.

Good luck with it, hopefully someone on here knows more?
