I've been running (at least 1 hour each workout) since the New Year, and have now acclimated to the intensity of exercise. But still, after the run as soon as I change and sit down, I am overcome by an incredible urge to sleep. I usually eat a banana, but if I don't I also get a headache. Someone suggested maybe electrolytes would help with the sleepiness. What are some credible sources of information on that? Or, any ideas for not being so sleepy after working out? [more inside]

I always feel nauseous towards the end and after a long run (~8+ miles). Will drinking gatorade or another sports drink during the run help with that? If not, what will? [more inside]
