Ran the Cork City Half marathon on monday- finished with a time of 3 hours, 14 minutes, 51 seconds. Delighted with myself, but I did get very sick afterwards.
The day was hot 20C and humid, overcast for most of the time then became sunny when I had 3 miles to go. Firsty hot day we've had this year.
I drank plenty of water (500ml between drinks stands), lucozade sport at 2 atands and I availed of the wet sponges. There was even a girl with a hosepipe that runners ran through (the spray not the pipe, lol). I can't see what else I could have done. Any suggestions?
It actually really spoiled the day, as I couldn't enjoy the party atmosphere going on around me.
I ran 12 miles a few weeks ago with no trouble, but it had only been around 12-13C that day and sunny. I did get a bad headache on friday night after a 5k race, but I know I didn't drink eneough. My husband is telling me to give up, if it's gonna make me sick.
Still, I achieved my goal and have my medal
Bring on the full marathon, preferably in the winter!!!!
