Thank you so much for all your comments....

I just got back from my dietician. Its basically a combo of everything said. I'm not hydrated enough before/during/after my runs. Plus I'm not getting enough carbs before my long runs. She also recommended an electrolyte tablet thing to put in my water which will help on long runs too!

Again, thanks so much for your comments!
Love that there are so many supportive people on Spark!

What are you eating and how much during your longer runs?

Hard to say. Given that it is summer I'd go with not hydrating enough coupled with running too fast for the temperature.

Do you know what a realistic training rate long runs on a good temperature day is for you?

Since you are posting to the Galloway group, have you run a magic mile to determine training pace.

Remember.... this is a non-medical answer.....

Are you running too fast?
Are you running in high heat?
Could they be caused by poor form when you get tired - slouching - tightening up your neck muscles?

Also..... when I first started longer runs I had a few bad headaches. I discovered that I was not hydrated enough.

If they persist I would suggest getting a medical opinion.

Here is a link that might help....

Okay..quick question...I ran a half marathon back in May. I wasn't properly hydrated, I came down with the stomach flu the week before the race. So I blamed the intense headache and nausea (which eventually led to me throwing up the little water I was able to keep down after the race)...I took like an hour nap and then was fine and could eat and everything.

I'm in training for another half marathon. I completed 8 miles for my long run last week and was fine. I did nine miles today and I got a headache near mile 6. It kept progressively getting worse. After a shower, two alieve, and some tuna for supper, my headache was intense enough it hurt to open my eyes, and my stomach was so queasy I felt like I was going to puke with any movement. I went to bed and slept off the nausea. I have a slight headache today but it's manageable.

I know it isn't the pills I took because I was sick last time without taking them. What's wrong with me that I can't do long runs? Any suggestions...
