I've noticed recently that any run I do in excess of 5K leaves me with a really bad headache that usually develops a couple of hours after I finish my run. The headache is focussed at the backs of the eyes/forehead. I do all the usual warm ups and warm downs and make sure I eat properly post run, but the problem persists. Anyone else experience this, or any tips to avoid this annoying post-run effect.
Could be all sorts you will probably have to go through a process of elimination:
DehydrationSquintingTension in neck/shouldersExercise headache (yes the do exist - exercise is bad for you!!)
I get similar, is related to my neck though and on sunny days i get them where you describe but its cos i've been squinting
