  • Metallic taste in mouth during speedwork

    I know there's a lot out there on what I am about to ask. Has any of you ever had a metallic taste in their mouth during sprints? I was doing 4x400 2x800m and started tasting the metallic on the 800m repeats. I know the internet has a bunch of article, but I am cautious about what's out there.

    JB...You have three hours on Earth. That metallic taste means youre the chosen one. Morpheous will be here shortly to escort you in his Electro-magnetic craft to Pluto where you will be harvested for your metal producing mouth whilst non-stop sprinting on a treadmill to continue production...much like the Slurm Queen from Futurama...The rare metallic saliva will then be sold back to Earthlings under the guise of "Energy Drinks" to which the masses will consume and become brain dead sleepwalking cattle......


    Nah but in all seriousness that sounds like some sketchy stuff...have never had that problem or heard of it...what have you read of what it may be?

    That whole first paragraph was just a random tangent....maybe you're morphing into a Metal Spitting **** Kicking One of Kind? eh eh?

      Blood tastes like metal so when you're breathing in cold air it could cause inflammation in your nose and mouth causing the metallic taste.

        Asthma, sinus problems, and excessively dry air may spur the taste of blood during exercise. If you are not asthmatic or do not suffer from sinus issues, it could also be caused when blood is forced through membranous tissue in the lungs, or even up into the bronchial tree. This occurs when you push yourself to the threshold of an anaerobic state, when the cardiopulmonary apparatus no longer benefits. Knowing this, it may explain why athletes notice this more than others.

            I have competitively ran for the past 12 years, especially the past 4 years of high school and I can say I don't believe I have ever encountered this problem. Hope you figure it out

                I have the same thing happen when I put out on short distance sprints (100-200m). Unless your spit is red don't worry about it.

                  It's happened to me a couple times too during repeat sprints. Happened to a couple other people I know. I think it's just a combination of pushing yourself, dryness of the air, temperature, and your current state of hydration. You're probably fine if you feel fine. If it keeps happening regularly, I'd probably see a doctor.
