Taste of Blood after running
SusanCed posted:
I am a 52 year old woman in good shape. I run a 5k in about 30 minutes without effort. Lately I have been swimming more than running, though yesterday I ran on pavement for about 30 minutes at a good clip to get in a quick workout in a busy day. I live in Phoenix and the outdoor temp was about 85. After I finished, I had the taste of blood in my mouth, though no visible blood in my saliva.

Should I be concerned?

Nothing to stress about and save the doctor a few grievance through not necessarily planning, as well as for that make any difference help save which excursion as well as the money till you absolutely need to visit. Not unusual among length sportsmen.
