I'm after a bit of advice as to combating the awful nausea I get after a long run. I've just come back in from an 18 mile long run as I train for the Chester Marathon. I feel awful. I am cold, I am shivering.
I set off at 9 this morning and my meals have been as follows:
7am - Bagel with peanut butter + banana + coffee
9am - End of Run - SiS Energy Gels + 1.5 SiS Energy Bars + Electrolyte hydration from a hydration backpack
Get home - feel awful. Feel weak. Felt too sick to drink or eat so I went for a shower and cold water on the legs. I've only now (40 minutes after) managed to drink 3 glasses of milk and eat something.
Just before I shower I did dry heave but nothing came up. I think that was just the nausea coming through.
I must be doing something wrong. I've never run 18 miles during training before. Even during the Asics262 campaign due to injury 16 miles was the longest training run.
Any advice appreciated,
