Important to do, I don't if I'm just lucky but it's always been really easy to empty out when I want to. I never had a problem during the event.

Shoulda had that advice this morning.
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

I realized this during my 5k yesterday. But it does not matter what I do, I always feel like I'm going to simultaneously puke and crap at the same time during 5k races. Maybe I should just slow down a bit...

Am I the only one who's stomach goes into overdrive mode before a race? I'm happy if I only have to go less than five times... :shock: Lucky it's a purely psychological thing, so as soon as there's no time or possibility to go to the toilet I don't need to anymore. Strange things...

I'm with you Fredrik...I never have GI issues, 'cause somehow everything gets cleared out race morning, no matter what. I always attribute it to extreme nervousness the night before and morning of the race. Whatever works!
