I puke, or come close to puking near the end of almost every race i run (track, cross country). I'm wondering if it's really just a natural thing when you run hard, or if there is something i can do so i'm not weighed down with my own vomit. Nobody else seems to have this puking problem.
Does anyone know a good snack to eat before running track or cross country?
Welcome to my world.and yes, you're exactly right- it's a natural thing that happens to some people :::raising my hand:::: when you push your body to the limits. On a good note, it means that you're giving it your all and that's really admirable. On the other hand, I know how much it sucks! My coach would come to congratulate me and would always step back from me to make sure I wasn't going to lose my cookies (which I almost always did)
The things that helped me were finding things that didn't cause me to throw up. The only thing I could eat before a race was watered down Gatorade and dry toast. Real exciting I know; but that's what did the trick and kept me from throwing up as much. I had to concentrate on eating a good wholesome meal the night before because my stomach just couldn't handle anything that day.
I wish I could tell you that it will stop but it just has to do wtih nerves and the chemistry of your body. You're out there giving it your all and unforutnately this is the end result. (It's nice to know I'm not alone!!) My dad is a runner and this always happened to him as well. I figured it was his fault I was this way!!
Serious runners - can you help me with this question about pain?
Nausea is occurs among many long distance runners, so you are definitely not alone. However, it is usually symptomatic of a problem that should be addressed.
Dehydration is the number one reason runners experience nausea. Basically, you're losing a lot of water and salt from sweating during your runs. This can be a problem if you're a heavy sweater. You need to stay well hydrated both before and during the run. I recommend drinking sports drinks (with electrolytes) during your runs to alleviate your problem.
Also, overexertion can sometimes lead to nausea, dizziness, and stomach cramps. You can try running at a slower pace until you build up your running base.
I need to know why one of my feet is going numb during my running exercises.?
That means that you are pushing yourself to your limit, which is good. Now, you have to work even harder in practice so that you can push yourself harder, and not puke as much.
Try building up your abdominals too. Good Luck

Has anyone used the nike+ products? Are they good?
dude i know what you mean... in countys i ran the 400... puked twice... ran the 800 and ended up winning 3rd in countys... then puked again. Puking in practice is also good, even though you might get alot of crap from your friends about being belimic.
i know what its like its like that for me after every race either dizzyness or naseua. i think its only because you ran hard and gave it your all. and if you keep running so hard you puke it means your dedicated to running which is the key to success.
