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)

Hey guys - I love the idea of making my own huaraches. I could always order some vibram material, but would be esp cool to make em out of rubber. Where can you get the right materials? Dump-diving? I hear car tires aren't good b/c of the metal...
