Does anyone else get caught short when your miles from home, and I don't mean a number 1!!! It's bloody annoying, and the thought of it happening reduces my milage significantly. Is this common or do I need to see a doctor lol ;-) I apologise once more for the subject matter but if anyone has any eating tips other than " don't have a Vindaloo before running) it could be a help.

Fantastic subject choice for your 1st post john!

It happens to a lot of people, me included. Advice on dealing with it ranges from having a good clear out before you run, to taking immodium, planning routes that go past your house/toilet that you can nip into, or getting aquainted with the woods.

Be prepared is the best policy.

Erm perhaps performing preparatory movements before you go out?

Either that or only run near pubs and conveniences.

Le Greg - new improved recipe
I know a few quiet places in Surrey which serve for that very eventuality. That being said, long runs (18 miles+) are Imodium territory.

It's not very nice at all when you do get caught out, It also depends on what time of the day you go for your run.

But any foods high in fibre will make the "process" go a lot faster if you know what I mean. A runner obviously needs a lot of fibre in their diet but you can balance it out with a varied diet.
