Since doing a 100K last weekend - albeit at a slow waddle - I have had quite marked fluid retention. I am used to this, but usually the floodgates open after 3-4 days. I know the present hot spell is to blame. However, is there anything I can do to hasten matters- I am already drinking buckets of tea, coffee and a few ciders. I realy do feel quite uncomfortable now.
Maybe you should go to hospital.
when you say fluid retention, do you mean you can't wee because your bladder is full but won't empty, or your body is holding onto the fluid and you are all puffy? either way it doesn't sound right and i think you should get some medical advice in this heat...
I am weeing and it pale straw coloured, but not the right volume. Don't feel it is a medical emergency, but will seek advice tommorow if nothing much happens overnight.
