I Always Puke When I Run
Hey, I always puke when I run!
I never really started running until I was in the Army, and I always puked.
The drill sergeants would make fun of me, but it always happened. I have run off and on for the last couple of years, and I talked to my buddy about it, and he said I should probably see a doctor.
It has never really bothered me (except I get bad heartburn on an empty stomach), and most of the vomit is spitup or water (sorry if I am being gross).
It feels like my throat gets dry and that is what is causing it, but I can't be sure. After a couple of times, I feel fine, and my second wind kicks in.
Any thoughts?Answer by Dominique:
Thanks for your interesting question!
Some runners have got quite some issues with their "internals" when they run.
It can be a number of reasons: Running too fast / asking too much of yourself Wrong food / drinks before a run "Weak" internal system
Most of your running should be at dead easy pace; conversational pace as they call it. Not exerting yourself. Does it happen always, or only when you run fast and get tired?
You say it happens when your throat is dry. Have you tried to very regularly drink little bits of water during your run?
If you have tried everything it could be worth checking out with a doctor. Which isn't a bad option anyway. Running is a lot more fun when you don't have to puke every time !
Hope you'll find a way to stop you from puking during the run.
