So I did a 10 mile run this morning (I'm in a HM at the end of May)......it's the longest distance I've ever done and I did expect niggles like my feet hurting over the bowl and my left hip aching, although in all honesty that's been aching all weekend. What I didn't expect was a sudden hit of the shivers after I'd finished.
I did the same as usual, finished my run, took my trainers off and did some stretches. Grabbed a glass of juice and a bowl of musili, put a fleece on and sat down to enjoy my food. I'd just about finished when I suddenly started really shivering.......I've never had that before, is it due to the longer distance or am I doing something wrong when I finish running?
I think its due to your body being put under more stress than it was previously used to. (you said 10 miles was the longest you have run)and then trying recover from it.
a friend of mine who is a massage and reiki therapist would call it a minor 'recovery crisis'
think as RWD says, just wrap up and keep warm until it stops
Yeah have to agree with the above.
Usually after races stewards give out the foil blanket to stop all of your body heat deserting you!
Wrap up warm as soon as you finish & maybe a gradual cool down?
