    Have to disagree ,for me one of the best things about running is the very regular bowel movements.Before running was a constipated couch potato with a bloated stomach.

    LMFAO This is one of the funniest things I have read and refreshing to know that other people have this problem. Great read.

    happened to me on every run for about a week last year, i’ve no idea why it started or stopped happening, this included a half marathon.
    From mile 8 i was in agony, the toilets at mile 10 were on the horizon and i happened to glance my garmin, 2 mins ahead of PB time (possibly caused by my need to evacuate my insides, as fast as i could) … i can make 3 more miles? i ran past and regretted it almost immediately, the last 3 miles were misserable pain, I finished a full 74 seconds faster than my previous PB, and snatched the medal off the young boy scout who was handing them out, i snatched it like a baton in the 4x100m olympic relay final, and after 13.1 miles i accelerated to a sprint as i saw the porta-loo’s at the end of the road, where ..upon reaching them i did a pretty accurate re-enactment of the dumb and dumber laxitives scene, It was more satisfying than smashing my best half marathon time.

    It is extremely frustrating when you have just started a long trail run and at 4km you need a poo. It seems like every run I do, no matter how short, I need to poo. Even if I poo on the run, there will be a second, I can promise you! These days I just plan ahead and either try and run past a loo or carry loo roll with me!
