I have been training for my first marathon (8th May) and on the last few 3 long runs i have experienced really bad tummy cramps ( and diarrhea when i got home). Today i ran 11 miles and after a pain free first 5 miles I took my first gel - Banana Luozade, within 10 mins a needed the toliet quickly. My race is in 3 weeks and i am now tapering my training. what should i take on the race? Should i change to a different make of gel (I have used other makes a few months ago - SIS and dont recall any majoy problems) or do i risk it and try a new nutritional strategy (Malt loaf or jaffa cakes etc..) I visited my doctor a couple of days ago and he has said i also have IBS! Any suggestions on what i should now do on race day please...
