Dehydration, heat : Make sure you drink enough during marathons, and as well take adequate "electrolytes" (salt). Dress lightly, make sure your clothing is well ventilated, avoid occlusive clothing. E.G. Visor hat is better than a hat that closes off evaporation. Humans were designed without clothing, and when you are hot and exerting, try to get back as close to that natural state. Spray water, evaporation cools. ...Read more

Conditioning: In the first few weeks of an exercise program, your body is adapting to the new requirements. It is building muscle and repairing any wear and tear. The sleepiness is your body's natural call for more sleep during this time. Over time, it becomes adapted to the exercise requirements and does not need as much building/repair to keep up. ...Read more

Back off: You should be starting your taper next week, so add a little recovery time now and test it out during shorter runs.

After not running for a while, I ran 6 miles a day for 5 days. I am 21 and in good shape but my arch has hurt for about a week. How long to recover?
Try to even it out: It could take several more days of rest. It is always better to have a steady exercise program than to stop and then try to resume at the level you were prior to stopping. Better to resume at a lower level of intensity and build up gradually than injure yourself and add to the deconditioning time by being injured. No one thinks it can happen to them until it does. ...Read more

Why do I get a very runny nose after intense cardio(ex. Soccer game) that lasts for a couple hours?
Increased vagal tone: There are three different nerves that innervate the nasal mucosa. The vth cranial nerve for pain and 2 autonomic nerves, sympathetic and parasympathetic. The latter nerve know as a branch of the vagus stimulates mucus production. In your case, this is unusual because excercize usually stimulates the sympathetic nerve which inhibits mucus.
