Hi, I wonder if anyone can give me some advice on something that's been bothering me for some time, and despite trawling the internet, I've not been able to find a straight forward answer to my query. I'm 58, and have been running about 9 years. I go through phases, but generally run quite regularly, 3 or 4 times a week, say 25 to 30 miles in total, at various paces. I've run many races over that time, everything from 5k up to marathon. My problem starts when I am running long distances, which is usually when i'm training for, or actually running a marathon, of which I've done four.Sometimes, after running over, say ,20 miles, a short time after I stop ( can be up to about 20 mins ) I come over really rough. I sweat profusely, feel really sick, and almost faint. This usually passes after about 5 or 10 mins, but is extremely nasty while it lasts. I was led to believe, this was due to a readjustment of blood pressure, but recently, I have had very similar symptoms after coming down from a self induced sugar high ( I overdo the choc sometimes! ) and I wondered if there was a connection? Is it blood pressure, or sugar levels, or some kind of combination of the two. If I could find out, I may be able to prepare better for it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Hi, i'm looking for a bit of advice. I bought a new pair of Saucony Omni 10 about 4 weeks ago, and have run them in pretty well,except on long runs, say 12 miles or more, i develope a blister under the arch of my right foot. ive had the Omni 8 and 9 and never had this problem. My worry is that i am running the Milton Keynes marathon next week, and was wondering the best way to protect my foot from this. Is there a special plaster for the underside of the foot, or would it still rub? any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

If you go by the postcode they give, its by the nursery side of inner circle, but possibly thats the only postcode within the park. If not, i guess it will be the hub. i'm getting there nice and early just in case!
