Yesterday I did a 10.4 mile run. When I got to 4 miles and started to get an aching feeling in my tummy and I guess I should have stopped at that point and gone to the bathroom but there was no-where to stop so I carried on. I completed the run and felt ok, I knew I needed the toilet but I could hold on. My husband picked me up and started to drive me home and thats when my tummy really started to hurt and I had an urgency to go to the toilet. He got me home just in the nick of time but I then spent a good 2 and a half hours on and off the toilet in absolute agony.
Has anyone else suffered like this? is there anything I can do to prevent it?
I am a morning runner and I dont eat before I go out. I did take lucozade during the run and a SIS caffine Gel at mile 6 (but this was the same pattern as the 10 mile run the week before and didnt have any tummy problems)
I have had this once before and that was on an evening training run with my running club and that was just a short 3.5mile run.
