Okay, today was the first day in about 3 months that I haven't run.  I am used to running minimum of 5 miles and up to 10 miles a day.  I don't know if anyone else who is an avid runner gets like this but I am all bent out of shape and irritable.  I almost bit my husband's head off for not allowing me time to get a run in and having to stay at school longer.  I got home and didn't feel like running and now I feel guilty and like I am going to blow up and get fat.  This is probably very disordered thinking but has anyone had this happen......getting irritable when you can't run?

Oriana, i've got to say i've never found this a problem during runs but if it is then just stick to juice. No fiber = no #2. You'll probably find you have more energy this way and not to mention you'll be lighter. Good luck with the race!

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.
