Advice? March 19, 2007Posted by RegiVizz in Fitness, Injury, Other Runners, Running.
Fellow runners; someone needs our help! Connie left this message on my “Worth. Less.” post with the following question:
- “Dear runners,
I get severe stomach cramps after my long runs. Today I ran in my first half marathon (it was GREAT!!!!); however, my stomach has cramped off and on ever since. I drink lots of water…I just do not know what causes this. I am training for the marathon, and I just hope that my stomach will not start hurting before I actually finish the race. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.
My question for Connie is this: what are you drinking during your run, how much, and how often? Also, are you “eating” Gu or any other type of performance food? Hopefully with some more info we can answer the question better. Do any of y’all experience anything like this?
