I skipped one half marathon because of my too high levels of IgE in blood. The reason was that I was not sure if I can do it under such condition. I was also not sure about when to stop if something comes. Last year, I did run under allergic symptoms but my recovery time was exceptionally very long.

I felt very good during running however. When I stopped, I felt exhausted and after it in recovering. The marathon also put my immune system little down and caused me some opportunistic diseases which I do not normally get.

I am interested in how you can support your immune system in running and in recovering from running.

I took pseudoefedrine before running and decreased the antihistamine load. I think I ate too little days after running which may be one reason for long recovery time.

What is a good strategy for endurance sport with allergic symptoms before and after the attempt?
