I also experience the same symptoms sickness , freezing cold and I ve been running for just under 2 years now. Like you its the same after 2 miles as its is after a half marathon. The only thing I do to try and rectify it now is have a shower as soon as possible after finishing to warm myself up or put on several layers of clothes within minutes of stopping, I also now have something to eat or drink as soon as I can, a banana or a glass of freshfruit juice works for me. As for feeling weary at 3 miles just make sure that you have enough to sustain your run before hand and that youre not 'running on empty' failing that maybe take some jelly babies with you and pop one in at that point. To increase endurance and distance you may also need to slow the pace down some.
Hi Michael, its a long time since I posted above and I like to think that I've learned a lot since then. The bacon rolls may be slightly stodgy to eat straight away, I'd try the banana and a drink in the first 20 minutes of returning just to see how that settles, and then have something more after that. I think you may need to look at your pre run fuelling too to see if you are having enough...
I do circuit training on Mondays, which seems to help quite well with running. Also had a light lunch, such as bananas and fruit snacks during the day, not to affect training later on.
This helps strengthen my muscles, and abs tight. Did 20 mins on the punch bag and one point felt I was going to chuck up, but didn't. Sprints afterwards, but kept up with and felt ok afterwards. Long club run on Tuesday...
