is it just me this happens to????
I get really hot in the night too sometimes.. also wake up starving at 5am and have to go and eat a scone or something!
Do you hydrate well after runs as well as during and before? Do you sweat much during the run/in the day in general? Some people just have higher body temps than others I guess...
Maybe it's a fever though? Keep an eye on it and go to the docs if you're really concerned

Now....I'm off in search of a scone, you've started me craving!
I'm going to be no help either, only I have the opposite problem. I get back from a run and about an hour or 2 later my body temperature seems to plummet. I'm usually cold, but this is extreme. Sometimes gets to the going to bed with a dressing gown and extra blankets stage.
I had some thought that it might be I don't dissipate heat well - seeing I'm usually doing my damndest to hang onto it. So I go out for a run and my body's trying to cool me down, but it just doesn't know when to stop, hence i get over chilled and feel cold. No idea if that's a possible explanation or not (prepares to be shot down in flames by a medically minded person)
Are you usually too hot? Is it worth trying to make an effort to cool down more? Cold shower after a run or before bed? That just sounds unplesant to me, but I imagine waking up soaked in sweat isn't very nice either.
See - said I wasn't going to be any help!
If you've done an LSR, your body will have taken a pounding, and your metabolism is probably elevated to help repair some of the damage. I guess this could make you too hot. If that's the case, I guess that hydration is important, but I don't know what else to suggest. Sorry. 8-(
...if I've had a particularly tough LSR...

If you're LSR is so hard, it ain't an LSR! You're doing too much, too soon. Take it easy! Build up slowly.
When you get back to your front door, you should almost feel like you could turn 'round and do it all again.

But if it's that tough, you ain't ready for it!
Training should be about getting stronger, not beating yourself up...
Feel shit like that after your target marathon - yes. That means you've pushed hard.
But after training? No way. Ease up, build more slowly. Take time. Running should be about pleasure. It's not a pennance...
...I did 21.5m too quickly for a LSR pace but it felt like a breeze. This one was only a half mile extra but it was really tough...
The answers there - you've said it yourself! You did a long run too quickly and the next time you went long you found there was a price to pay.
That 'too quick' long run is what should be happening on race day. And after a race, you're going to give yourself some time off and recover. But you did it in training, so now you've got to alter your schedule to incorporate the recovery. No biggie, just learn the lesson and get it right next time
LSR's are for easing back & enjoying life. Like a long bath, you should be thinking 'this is wonderful, I feel like doing an extra 5 miles.'
