I started crew today. I am 13 and the last time I had a good workout I was 9 and in gymnastics. I am raw now, have tons of energy and good endurance to run with and stuff. Yet today was my first day of training and I went on the ergo meter and rode a bit then did 500 meters in 2 minutes and 11 seconds. I felt fine afterward. My butt was a little sore and I was out of breath. The state average is 1 minute and 50 seconds so I don’t feel bad since I haven’t worked that hard for 4 years. But anyway, back to the point on hand. Coach was talking to us and we walked about 100 meters. When we were standing and talking, my stomach started to feel strange and I thought I might throw up. (By the way, all I had for breakfast is a mango, practice started at 7 am) I felt fatigued by now and my vision got a bit blurry and white. I was tired and sat down. Then laid down and coach asked me to open my eyes. I did but I was so tired I laid back down and fell asleep. Well I thought. I had a dream, can’t remember about what but that isn’t really relevant. Next thing I know I am awake and coach is hovering over me asking me questions. I suppose I was only out for a few minutes but I still passed out. I fainted supposedly. Why do you think this is? Crew is supposed to be the third hardest sport behind swimming and cross country. Still though, I was always in shape. Why do you think I fainted? What do you think I should do?
