true but if team GB had fielded the best its got in each then youd expect that person to have had the gold, so its in the right ballpark. Thats what the table is ranked on right? I guess its misleading for the silver and bronze totals, indeed.
your feet and joints need time to get used to the forces you are going ot generate by running on them. You may well find that your heart and lungs start start to write checks that your tendons and sinews cant cash (yet) - You might try a run/walk programme just to give your chassis time to catch up with the new engine, as it were.
a longer than usual and / or faster than usual effort, the sort that leaves you with your skin quite hot and your metabolism up can make you need the loo in the hours after the run sure.say a hard 10k time trial or a 20 miler with a big chunk run at your goal pace.
You do see folks necking so much water before a race (marathon) that they ahve to stop and pee 200 yards in. People do make some naive choices like that or overeating the night before and not going to the toilet properly on the day.
