I totally have the same problem. Anything with flavour makes me gag. I force down carb drinks only because I know I need the energy. It yakes all my will power not to throw up. Unfortunately after every hard race when I've taken them on board I throw up for ages afterwards and the horrid taste of those wretched drinks stays with me for a long time. I wish someone could offer a solution.
Am in training for my 15th marathon and whilst I love it I suffer really badly after the race.Within about 30 minutes of finishing ( I average around 3.30 time) I start vomitting and feel dreadful. This carries on like a really bad hangover for about 3 hours until everything is out of my system. I can't eat or drink anything until this has passed. I don't know anyone else who reacts this way, is it normal and can I prevent it?I am 50kg female who hydrates well during the race.
I was well into some decent preparation for London - this being my 12th marathon and was aiming for a sub 3.15. ( wishful kiss of death!) Have been experiencing a sharp jabbing pain on the inside of my left ankle joint. Have iced and used ibuprofen and it does ease off but is stiff in the mornings. I can walk easily but when running it comes on almost immediately. Whilst the pian is uncomfortable it hasn't stopped me running, I was continuing with speed work and a week ago di a threshold 11 miler on the road. My physio gave me some ultra sound to try to detect whether there was a fracture and I felt some vibration but not a sharp pain as he said it would be. I have been cycling in the gym like mad this week to keep my cv levels up. Am I crazyif I go off road tomorrow and try a long run or should I just accept defeat and admit that it is a fracture and hang up my trainers? I am so frustrated and annoyed. I haven't ever had a pain in the area of the ankle before and even the physio admittted it was very unusual. Any advice/words of comfort would be gratefully recieved.....
Help! I've torn the cartilage in my right knee stroking a dog of all things! I'm a 38 year old female, run 30 miles a week and have never ever had more than a week off running in my life - that includes two pregnancies. I'm waiting to see a consultant but not for another 10 days! Am going stir crazy. Have been doing upper body weights and abdominal work. Tried a three mile walk this morning ( took an hour) and the knee looks like a large balloon. Can anyone please suggest whan and if I'll ever get back to normal.I've also started to put weight on.... any words of comfort please?
Thanks everyone good to know that it's not just me. I'll take things easier for a while yet and not get so frustrated. The benefits of donating surely outweigh the feelings of tiredness for a few weeks
