I graduated about a month ago (finally - it took me closer to 9 months than 9 weeks, thanks to a combination of injury and a super-stressful new job that left me with no time or energy to run) and since then I've been running 2-3 times a week. 1 or 2 of those runs are around 25 - 30 minutes, plus one run at the weekend when I try to up the time by about five minutes.
My problem is that I can't seem to run without getting the runs afterwards. After the 25-30 minute runs it's usually just one trip to the loo as soon as I get home, but when I try to up my distance it's led to me spending the rest of the evening on the loo, and in considerable pain.
I always run in the evenings, before dinner. I might have a banana before going out, but nothing heavier. I drink some water before going out and when I come back, and I drink plenty of water during the day so I don't think dehydration is a problem. I recently tried running with a bottle of water, but that made no difference. My pace is around 9.30-10mins a mile, which feels comfortable to me. If I try to slow down it feels unnaturally slow and I end up back at my normal pace - so I don't think I'm going too fast.
Have other people had the same issue? What did you do to fix it? Any advice/suggestion gratefully received! Thanks!
