i only ever get nauseous after a long run if I've had gels or more than about 500ml of sports drink. I had to stop at eighteen miles at Chester last year with the worst nausea I've ever had, not just chocking up but the whole clammy skin thing too.
I eouldnt go do far as to say I won't ever use gels again but I am beginning to seriously doubt that they are much use and I think I'd rather enjoy my training and run a slightly slower race. I will be having a crack at Chester too if I feel ok on the day, if I run faster than last year then I will never use another gel!
