  • This Sounds Like BS to me...

    A co-worker (who runs marathons all the time and is actually not in bad shape) told me today... well she said a lot so stupid as CW crap (soy and tofu bleh bleh bleh)... but she said that anyone who runs a marathon CANNOT eat meat the day before or they will crap their pants... it's just how digestion works. Runners shouldn't eat meat becaue they'll crap their pants...

    Really???

      Maybe habitual runners tend to be borderline vegetarians and have trouble adjusting to meat anyway.

        The only thing that ever made me feel like taking a dump while running was actually oatmeal...I think the fiber does it.

              So not true!! I just ran the Chicago Marathon. I did eat a bit lighter the day before, but I had chicken. No issues for me!

                I don't know, but if I were to run a marathon and complete it, I'd crap my pants.

                  Back in the early days of the Boston Marathon, many of the best runners would have steak and eggs on the morning of the race.

                  Personally, I have run a number of marathons as well as olympic distance triathlons, and for each of them I ate a large portion of some form of bacon, sausage, steak, veggies and eggs, on the day before and day of the race. My last trail marathon (which I did unsupported witth my five fingers in the snow on Nov 22) I had a big egg scrambler with bacon, steak and sausage and then used water, some fruit and nuts once as my fuel.

                  No need to crap.

                    I'm a lifelong endurance athlete (marathons, Ironman triathlons, endurance bicycle races). For me (and this is all before going "Primal") I did not want to have anything in me that would compete with my body's need for resources during the event. I would try to eat anything "heavy" two nights before the race, and indeed would stick to easily digestible things (HA! What I thought was back then anyway) like breads, pastas, tomato sauce, etc..

                    Had I eaten a steak the night before - as long as I was eating steak regularly - no problem, but I figured why take the chance. That said, even on easy to digest foods, I would before an Ironman take immodium just to plug up the works as a preventive. Loose bowels are common during ultras, regardless of diet.

                        My friend is an endurance athlete who won't eat vegetables before a big event because of the fiber. On a mountain bike race he once had to "pull over" in the bushes because he had a big salad the night before. PB and banana sandwiches during the race seem to be standard - as well as some sugar, gel pack thing? Whatever that is.

                        So yeah... sounds like BS to me. I've never had the urge to "go" after eating a steak.

                          As soon as I saw who posted this thread, and that it started with the words "a co-worker" I sighed... you work with some real "winners" THP! =] The stories are too funny to read, but I'm sure it's frustrating to be with these folks on a daily basis.

                              BS. My neice runs at least one marathon a year, and she eats meat all the time, even the day before and the day of. More vegan fairy tales.
