Are You Training Your Gut?

Runners tend to do a good job of training their muscles, heart and lungs. But some of them (particularly marathoners and ultra-runners) commonly fail to train their gut. As one marathoner reported, "I was so afraid of getting diarrhea during long training runs that I did not eat or drink anything beforehand. I really struggled after 14 miles..." A high school athlete admitted, "I'm so afraid I'll throw up if I run with food in my stomach." He ate only a light lunch at 11:00 and then practiced on fumes at 3:30. No wonder he had a disappointing season.

An estimated 30-50% of endurance athletes (including up to 90% of distance runners) have experienced gastro-intestinal (GI) issues during and after hard exercise. They fear bloat, gas, nausea, stomach cramps/pain, side stitch, diarrhea, vomiting, and urge to defecate. These issues arise during long bouts of exercise because blood flow to the gut is reduced for an extended period of time.

You may recall I mentioned in the last issue of Running Journal that my newest book, Running Out of Gas: A Lifelong Runner’s Take on Slowing Down will be published by Meyer and Meyer in January 2018.

As a reader of this fine running periodical you will now have the opportunity for a sneak preview; specifically the Foreword to the book. My hope is that it whets your appetite for the 77,000+ words that follow. Once the book is published it can be found at Barnes and Noble as well as on everyone’s favorite online shopping site, Amazon.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Foreword to Running Out of Gas:
