i had better not go back to enduroman..........My hands wouldn't work enough to take my shorts down.hence sitting down to pee my pants on the grass..........and this year quads refusing to work hence not able to sit down and having to pee standing up at teh tree...........

I can say that this years was more successful as last year all the peeing in my pants caused the worst chaffing I have ever known...............this year no peeing in pants and no chaffing at all.........

I have to ask, is it worth it?

Don't you stink like an old people's home for the rest of the day?  I don't like the sweaty smell of myself very much by the end of an IM as it is, without adding stinking of piss into the mix.

I wouldn't do it in training Mouse but on race day I do.
I think it's worth it then.... in beats trying to find a suitable bush!

Tbh, I probably don't smell too grand at the end of an Ironman... with or without the piss!

No. I have white bike shoes.

And am so slow that a few mins in a portaloo during the bike leg won't make any odds, am not chasing a Kona slot!

Having six or seven wees on the run at Roth might have added a fair bit to my marathon time though, but again, I just wouldn't fancy the shoe cleaning after, so it's portaloos for me.

I popped my peeing on the bike cherry at IM France and stopped at the supporters to tell everyone, because I was so chuffed.

Can't do it in training, but I couldn't think of anything worse than getting off the bike at 80 or 90 miles to go to the loo, then have to climb back on and try to start again. Audrey a doesn't mind..... I think.

I've needed to on the run but have never managed it. There is still time!

Confessions of a Mouse....

At Copenhagen last year, I clearly over hydrated once I got off the bike to compensate for hardly drinking whilst on it.  On the run, I went for a big wee (in the portaloo) twice a lap, every lap... apart from the second wee on the last lap where I was just so fed up and wanted to finish I held it for a bit longer and did a wee in the shower lorry at the end.

I'm sorry I'm a bad mouse.

(Everyone else had finished by then anyway.)

That's not really a confession. Peeing in the shower is acceptable.

I think in Nice, Mon had just been through T1 as I came through and she admitted after that she had a pee on one of the chairs. I still wonder if the wet chairs sat on was the one Mon had vacated just moments earlier...

No to bike, yes to run. At IMCH the toilets were so gross it was a choice between weeing on the run or vomiting in the loo.

Weeing in portaloos on the run is a horrible experience imho. Having to stop running and then assume a hover position without your legs going into a spasm of cramp... getting back to a standing position is no mean feat either and then having to get those legs going again! Just evil.

Men have it easy!

  • Swim - yes
  • Bike - yes
  • Run - yes

Although on run it was behind a tree. On 30 and 50 ultras I have pee'd whilst walking to keep average pace up. Steady flow required and a wider spread on walk. But then I am boy not a girl.

Haha. Little bit this part of initiation?

I might have to try it (is this the point where you all tell me you are joking?!)

Can I just recommend that this is one thing that should not be preactised whilst turboing in the living room

Nope - it is less obvious if it is raining - which it always is.

a tip if peeing while running - make sure you don't have muddly legs as the pee will leave large telltale track down the legs (Toughguy)

a tip if peeing in a wetsuit - make sure you don't have nicks in the suit legs as the pee will leak out and will be seen by others as you are stood around waiting for the race start (Vitruvian)

who me??

this was at the race briefing KK - on dry land.....I'll happily pee in my wetsuit anytime
