I've seen a few different threads on this, but thought I'd set up a new one is a bit different! I've been doing long runs (10 miles +) for the last year or so, having smashed my PB for the half marathon in March, I was looking forward to getting a better time in Cardiff last weekend.
During my long training runs, especially when it's hot I've started to feel queasy towards the end, and after a few I've had real nausea and sickness afterwards, especially when it's hot! I was flying in Cardiff up to Mile 10, when I started to feel rough and by the end managed to walk run the last few miles, so losing precious minutes as a result of nausea. After the race, when I'd cooled down a bit I felt like I had a bad hangover and was rough for a few hours afterwards.
A few running friends have said it could be down to salts, as I do sweat (ok, it's a runners forum and we're all friends here!) badly on my long runs when it's hot. As I've been ok in colder races, this makes sense, so how do I beat it?
I try to hydrate well before the races and long runs, but don't drink much (water or high5 as a choice) due to the sloshing in my stomach. I've got a fairly healthy diet, don't drink much alcohol (at present!) but want to see if there are any suggestions as to what the sickiness may result from (as it seems to be common) and what are the magic answers?
