If you are suffering from this condition then consult your Ayurveda consultant. Ginger is the best remedy for same. Drink ginger tea or ginger infuse tea, at least 2-3 times in a week.

Overall as a precaution such runners should avoid long distance running in summer or complete your run in morning. The best is listen to your body and change your running plan. Let coach know if you have this condition.
