I have always heard to rest and rehydrate, even take extra vitamins after a marathon as our immune systems are usually a little shot. Well I rested, took an emergenC and tried to drink a lot of water, and guess what? I'm sooooo sick!
This didn't happen after my last 2 marathons, so why now? I'm guessing because I never really got over my last cold which attacked me 2 weeks before the race. Total bummer but what can you do? I went to my doc, am on meds, slept a ton and now just hoping for the best! I miss running!
