I went for a run this afternoon I have been training for 10k for a few weeks now and have been gradually building up distance.
Today I went for a bit of an increase in speed. Not a lot but pushed myself a bit.
After I finished running I walked back to my flat to cool down.
After about 5 mins I started to get like period pain (not got period and it;s not due) it got really bad and at one point I had to sit down on the side of the road as I thought I was going to pass out.
When I got back to my flat I basically landed in a heap just inside the fron door. I stayed there for about 20 min's before it started to subside then was gone completly.
I'm 26 and slightly over weight.
Is this normal??

I'm not sure if it's normal, but I've experienced it before. Once it was so bad my abdominal area was sore for 3 days afterwards. And it started during a race. Needless to say, I didn't do too well.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This is normal. Its due to spasm of abdominal muscles because of increase work of breathing.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
