Oriana,

Two words as an answer: water + monomeals.

Mono digest quicker than mixed food.

Keep hydrated and it will help the bowel movements. When you wake up drink at least a liter of water and that will result in #2 coming quickly. And obviously for the shorter, early runs skip the breakfast as any food matter getting in will push out whatever there was left in the intestines. For HM or marathon wake up very early so you can drink and eat breakfast at least 2h before.

And the wee thing should not worry you as the pro runners sometimes have the same "problem" but they just do it without stopping :)

Hi Oriana,

Although I'm not 100% raw at the moment (I'm sticking to low fat cooked carbs when I can't get fruit), I find that when I drink a decent amount of water on waking (ie 1.5 litres) then almost without fail I need to do a number 2 within half an hour. That clears me out until the next meal! This predictability happens as long as I eat whole food with all the fibre intact. However, my problem is having to stop for a wee on long runs! Regard's Stuart.

okay, I have asked this embarrassing question a couple of times but really haven't gotten an answer that I like.  Maybe there isn't one.  I run and am a LFRVer all the way.  My problem is that I do a lot of long training runs (anywhere from 5-10  miles a day) to train for marathons. I always have to stop midrun or even several times to go #2 because of the massive amount of fiber I eat every day.  I am getting nervous about my 1/2 marathon this Sat. because I am worried that I won't get to a porta potty in time.  The last few marathons that I have run in I made it but it always scares me.  I have visions of me crossing the finish line with a "mess".  Any tips?

RunOnFruit: this is an amazing proof (just another one) of what a LFRV diet can do. Thanks for letting us know!

RunOnFruit,

although the "specialists" claim your HRmax is hard to raise and it actually decreases with age, I think this is a lie. Same as the formula HRmax=220-age.

My HRmax increased, for which at first I was blaiming my HRM. But I think it is possible for your HRmax to increase. They just don't do tests on fruitarians :-D
My resting HR decreased and what is more  important it can be achieved quickly during any time of the day.

The strange thing is that now I run the same pace at a higher HR. Yet I can sustain that higher HR without problems.

Watermelon and running?  Does anyone have to "stop" quite frequently when running after having a watermelon day?  Any tips?  Also, do most people on this board run every day.  I do.

For me the VFFs are doing a great job. I got a pair of KSOs and I am using them quite a bit as where I live there is often broken glass on the sidewalks... I must have run 300 miles in them, 100 of them on trails, and they are still kicking, giving me no issue... So I believe they were worth their value. But I do agree that there is nothing better than bare feet, and I may change my view on VFFs after I try Huaraches! Stay tuned!

@P-lee...i've done "kind of " with giving sealskinz socks to the guy that repair climbing shoes... he "high temp glued" rubber sole to them , quite good indeed , must experiment further , but these looks good!

veggimike .... A N Y T H I N G would work (even car tires , i've done , metal is just on the side , put duck tape toprotect , but indeed every person that fix old shoes would have something for you)
