Ok, I did my longest run yesterday and have noticed lately when I do a long run now my stomach is so iffy the rest of that day and sometimes into the next. Does this happen to a lot of people? Is it normal? I've never really experienced this little side effect before just curious how prevalent it is and if/what helps. Thanks!

What are you eating/drinking after your long runs. I was doing milk with Carnation Instant Breakfast and protein powder and seemed to always have HELLACIOUS gas and intestinal issues, but only after my long runs. Then it one day hit me that maybe it was a lactose issue. Made my drinks with lactose-free milk after that and never again had a problem.

Did I mention that sometimes eating too much romaine lettuce gives me the shits, too...damned plants.
I agree. Eating "healthy" is risky for running. Too much fiber.
Dave, that sounds like a nice race. Have you run it before?
