Dear fellow runners
Does anyone else get puffy eyes and swollen face the day after a long run?? Or is it just me? Or maybe this is something else?
I think mine is dehydration. Did 19.5 miles yesterday and a salty meal afterwards. Well I thought I had plenty to drink but this morning I woke up with a massive face and I'm so thirsty. I've had like 2 liters of water already and I'm still thirsty.
I started working out why I'm feeling like this and it seems to be a pattern every Monday morning. Well I do my long run on a Sunday.
When I was a heavy drinker, I had these symptoms after a day of my hangover. Now I dont drink anymore and I'm still getting it! How unfair is this!!!
Anyway does anyone else have this and if so, have you got any tips of how to avoid it? I've drank loads before, during and after my run. I mean I have a camel back and I've nearly had all of the water it contains plus a sports drink. And this is during the run.
It must still not be enough. Am I missing something crucial here?
