I've started to increase my training in preparation for my first marathon this year. This has been a gradual over a period on months now and I'm running between 30-40miles a week now.
I've run a few events from 10k's to half marathons over the 2 years I've been running and have suffered a bit with nausea for a few hours after pushing myself harder in these events,. This weekend however after a half marathon weekend I was violently sick for 2 hours afterwards. I've been ensuring I'm hydrated before the race and take on water during. I suffer with stitches if I eat too close to running so have breakfast approx 3 hours before then a cereal bar closer to the race. Usually I'll have a drink like powerade straight after finishing then try to get a meal in but this is hard until the nausea goes.
I've never suffered this badly before and I'm worried now about how I may be affected after or even during the marathon.
I know I'm probably getting something very basic wrong here so I really would really appreciate any advice.
