Oal4n, what if you don't know what caused it? Who says they go behind a bush EVERY time they run? Shit happens, literally. I bet the sun shines constantly, every race is a pb and those judgey pants are pulled right up in your world.
Right, pre run Brad sorted, I'll run to the river, see if there's any fish and then back.
oal4n, it's been said you're not a proper runner unless you've had to nip in the bushes for an emergency Eartha. At Outlaw last year I was full of immodium and my stomach start gurgling away and creating a stream of bubbles behind me, it went away but I'd have walked back to the caravan rather than get my wetty off in T1
I always carry emergency loo roll with me on a run. I've done what Magna Carter hasn't done.... and also had to nip into the bushes one night and got snared by brambles, my legs looked like they'd been ripped to pieces by a shark. On business in Florida once I did the same early one morning in some bushes by a small river, resumed my run on the road above to see a big* alligator in the water about 10 yards from where I'd been.
Had to withdraw, barely run in a month. The crack from dropping a sofa on my leg is still sore, running leaves my whole lower leg swollen and the GP said don't do it. Gutted, proper gutted, was training well and looking forward to putting right last year's efforts.
