    Hi,
    
    Title says it all really, I was wondering if anyone else has had the same issue after their long runs? This only really affects me on 15-ish miles plus, sometime shorter but that's normally easy to pin point my bad preparation.
    
    I completed my first marathon on Monday (woo!) and was sick afterwards (only a little) but I think it may of been heat exhaustion/heat stroke as I drank a fair bit! (just had to be the hottest day of the year didn't it) It's happened after long runs in marathon training in winter conditions and baking hot, so not sure what can cause it, has anyone else been like this?
    
    I carb up before and always have water on the go at work through the week, I cut out the carb gels as they make me feel bleugh anyway but still happens without, I was wondering how much you guys drink per hour etc? Maybe I'm overdoing it as a pose to under doing it! 
    
    Love to run more marathons but it's not cool to be puking after everyone =/
