Let me first say, this could be a TMI post, but hey, I figure somebody’s gotta talk about it, so it might as well be me!
I’ve been having an issue while running lately and I’m not sure how to deal with it. I’m sure I can’t possibly be the only person who deals with this situation, I think it’s just nobody wants to talk about it.
I’m pretty sure I have running induced irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). No matter if I use the restroom before I go running or not, somewhere along my run, it’s like all of a sudden it’s like “oh crap, gotta go” (pun intended). Sometimes I’m able to hold off until I get home, sometimes there’s just no warning at all and you’re just screwed.
Does anybody else suffer from this? If so, how do you deal with it?
