Have been running for years no problems until a year or two ago was out on a run and came over dizzy and fell to the ground. Felt v groggy for a bit and thought it was a one off, but have been having trouble since. Been checked out by nerve/heart specialists and the consensus is I suffer from exercise-induced migraine which comes on about half an hour into my run, I have to stop or I would fall over I am so dizzy, quite often sick with it, Have to sit out for at least 5-10 mins. Sometimes then I can walk a bit and even carry on running. But it happens every time I run a 10k type distance and ruins it. Have tried all the obvious things - correct hydration/electrolyte balance/properly fuelled etc. Would just like to hear of someone else who suffers so I know I am not alone!!
I had this treatment (10 in all I think) and it worked wonders for me! After 3 months wearing one of those rigid boots for the injury to try and heal itself (which it didn't) this was a godsend. Then again it might not work the same for everyone.
First time I had run this course and loved it. Not my best time unfortunately as I am sometimes plagued with migraines when running and this happened yesterday but this wonderful marshall gave me his own drink and it helped me to finish. That guy deserved a medal.
This is what I just don't get - and yes it is always the blokes! Having to work out in pairs. What is the point? One lifts the weights on a machine while the other watches. So you're only doing half a work out! Can someone explain that one? Is it not more sensible to both be doing something at the same time? (and no it's not coz all the other machines are taken either)
