Ooo Kendal mint cake might be a good idea thanks! I just need to find something. I'm ok with running 13-15 miles without needing fuel as long as I've eaten enough before etc.
had similar the other week- I was on a skiing holiday, people eat huge meals for lunch then go out & ski and I can't do that without feeling sick/bloated! And that's not even as demanding an exercise cardiovascular-wise.
I find the idea of eating actual food mid-run mind boggling. I have tried the odd gel on 17 mile run but struggle with stomach pain a little! Need to find something that works for these long runs but I can't imagine actual food ever agreeing with my pesky stomach!
I did this in training for the last half marathon I ran in October but was amongst quite a planned schedule, and I tapered carefully.
I beat my half PB by 5 minutes in 1hr 35 and felt like I had a lot left by the end. I'm sure training a bit further than the distance helped but I think having quite a planned schedule as a whole was the most beneficial.
I've tried running through initial anaemia and its tough. I would say rest and recover. As others say it takes a while for the iron levels to get back to normal although I used to feel a lot better quite quickly, I guess depends how depleted the levels are!
I find taking liquid iron supplements more effective too. And look at your diet, mine was often caused by getting sloppy on eating habits.
