I'm preparing for a marathon.
I ran 15km yesterday evening. First 10km were ok but at faster speed (10.76Km) than usual. Than the last 5km were tedious. I experienced cold hands, which I've never experienced so far.
I arrived home and craved for anything with sugar. After 15mn, the cold left.
I experienced some cramps this evening, not massive though.
Question are the following:
- Should I put a tiny stash of sugar in my pocket to be able to avoid having cold hands?
- How come I experienced cold hands? This is not the first time but this is the first time, it was so intense I had to stop running
- Should I drink much more before starting a 15k training in the evening, after a day of work?
Thanks for your input
