I am a high school junior. I run for the girls cross country team. We are a low mileage program, so I run about 35 miles a week. My current 5k time is 19:22. Since the middle of last track season (around May), after every race my eyes feel the urge to close. As soon as I cross the finish line and I'm putting my hands on my head, my eyes immediately close. I open them after a few seconds, but they just feel really tired. Then after about 5 minutes, they are no longer tired. Every one I have talked to says this isn't normal. Is this normal post race fatigue? Could it be that I am not getting enough sleep? Could it be that I'm iron deficient? Or is this something else? Thanks!
