May have overdid it: You just overexerted yourself a bit. If it's 1st time in awhile (or ever) for heavy exercise or workout then, you want to start slower and work up to to higher levels slowly. If you got back together after 5 min. then, that's OK...We like to see your heart and breathing rates down to normal within 2 min. after heavy exercise to be considered in pretty good shape. ...Read more

What happens is that your blood pressure drops instead of increases when you change positions causing the symptoms you describe. I've attached a website with good information about orthostatic hypotension. Basically, make sure you are staying well-hydrated during exercise to avoid this in the future. ...Read more
