Throwing up during morning workouts! Help!

Before this year I had NEVER thrown up during a workout. But then during one of my efforts to get in shape for my upcoming soccer season, i went for a run in the morning and ended up throwing my guts up on the side of the road. My running partner said it was because i hadn't eaten anything that morning. Then This morning I did a distance trial for my soccer team and was throwing up again, and that time i had eaten a couple of granola bars about an hour before. HELP! I don't feel like im pushing myself too hard or anything!

Are you drinking coffee? If so, stop it. That is far more irritating than other food to your stomach.

Are you wearing a heart rate monitor? It does sound like you are pushing yourself too hard.

Without more details (weight, height), it's hard to know if 2 granola bars is too much. How far are you running? How far into your run does it happen? Does it happen only once?

Heh, PP, no such thing as pushing oneself too hard in a tryout! (And I say this as a coach.... ) OP, you don't say whether you are male or female. If you are female, and if you recently started birth control pills or switched birth control pills this is more to be expected than not. Of course, pregnancy is also notorious for causing this kind of thing, but you'd tell us if you were pregnant, right?

A lot of people find dairy and/or fruit to be irritating before a run. I'm not sure what's in granola bars, but check what you are eating.

Also, how hot is it where you are running, and how hot are you getting? I've had plenty of heat stroke, and it _always_ makes me throw up. This is something that you really want to be careful with; unfortunately some young athlete somewhere, usually running around in football gear in the South, dies at this time of year. If you're training and trying out in >80F weather, it's always something to look out for.

one reason that people throw up is excess acid that collects in the stomach, that the body wants to get rid of.

Stu Mittleman talks about this in slow burn...

Is there a chance you're pregnant? Or dehydrated?

Twice the puke, zero push? Hold on, soccer star! Ditch the Air freight companies to your health and prioritize a pit stop. Doc's the gatekeeper, not granola bars. Get inspected, optimize your fuel, and maybe consult a nutritionist baggage handler. Then, back to the pitch, but smoother than first-class! Your body's not cargo, treat it like the MVP it is
