I ran an ultra marathon two weeks ago, 54 miles over the hills in Scotland. After I felt tired and sore but started feeling back to normal two/three days later. I took a week off from doing any sport, but decided to go a tiny 3 mile run this week on tuesday.
After this three mile run I started feeling unwell and my legs felt as if I'd just run another 54 miles. I also got cold sweats and a bad stomach (sorry for that info).
Has anyone else felt horrendous and unwell on their first couple of runs after a marathon? Maybe I'm just being soft. How long should you do nothing after a marathon??
