well SOMEONE had to start the discussion!!!

Not sure the average 'bout of nookie' (who wrote THAT Benny Hill?)using the same amount of calories as climbing two flights of stairs......must be a pretty short 'bout of nookie'!

I would have thought it helps as it releases endorphines and helps you to sleep better - a good mental attitude is a big help and being awake engenders a more positive attitude

When my OH did Lanzarote IM in 1995 he was advised to forgo marital relations in the run up....... good job he never does what he's told unless its by me !!  Mindyou - he did come in a little slower than he'd trained for (the race, not the ermm......well, you know ) so..............?

I know it helps you finsih a race asap, so you can get back and have a right good fck.......!

I e-mailed the link to my girlfriend (who's currently in America).

I'm yet to get her to speak about the subject

2 flights of stairs?  I thought us runners would be at least burning enough calories to run up the Empire State Building

Chance would be a fine thing haha!

Beats the normal stretching before running

I knew it!!!! I knew that sex wasn't the most calorie buring activity you could do. There are loads more things that make me more out of breath than 15 mins of sex, icluding actually taking the stairs. The 3 flights of stairs at college always have me gasping for oxygen lol. Sex is easy compared to that lol. (

Agree with the sex not affecting performance the next day. I had sex the night before before race day. Needed something to calm my nerves so i could sleep and i didn't think alcohol was wise. Ran my 1st 10k in 56.50 the next day - only 10 secs per mile slower than my personal best for that distance.

Do not believe that sex the night before helps relieve muscle aches after the race tho. My hip really hurt and it hurt to walk the next day after my race. Possibly sex right after the race would help, but u might wanna take a shower first lol.

Sex helps women block out pain and men sleep.

 What does that say about us?

I wouldn't recomend sex in the middle of the night before a race... I found doing so did calm my nerves, but on the other side I was knackered the following morning.... maybe I should have stuck with just the once before bed rather than....

Once point about the article 

 male athletes were made to run on a treadmill 12 hours after having had sex. They showed no decline in stamina, or mental and physical performance

12 Hours is that 12 hours on a treadmill or 12 hours after sex ? 

Duckinator, I think you should have kept that quiet, don't want the Mrs to come back and tell you it works!

My thoughts precisely,go for it whenever the mood takes,the legs may need a good warm up but what a mental buzz when you get 10 mins into the run.Keep running & shagging every1,we're only here once.

I have a race tomorrow. Anyone fancy a quickie?
11/08/2010 at 13:37
Too tired ta!!!! No women on this discussion, cant think why!!
11/08/2010 at 13:44

The night before, or in the morning before?  Or both? 

Doesn't seem to do me (or my Squeeze) any harm.  We've both had several PBs over various distances in the last couple of years

But then, we've not tried NOT having sex before a race.....

Would Hepthathletes need to have one bout or something before each event.

Sound advice methinks, although I would worry about pulling a muscle or two the night before a run lol!
