I wonder if anyone else has experienced an abnormally long period following a marathon?! I completed my first marathon two and a half weeks ago, my period started a few days later and I still have it 10 days later! My periods are normally fairly short and light. I half expected to not menstruate at all following the exertion. is this simply a case of my body reacting in a different way to the strains of marathon?
