Vancouver Sun article: Tips to Avoid the Discomforts of Running

SunRun Training Week 9: Guidelines for a Happy Gut while Running

Discomforts of running include aches and pains of stitch and bathroom stops.In this week's Vancouver Sun article, I give readers tips to ensure a happy gut while running. SunRun training now well underway, you may have experienced the aches and pains of a stitch or the discomforts of having to make an urgent bathroom stop along your jog. These can be avoided by having the right foods at the right time and avoiding certain foods and drinks before your run.

The guidelines in this article should keep you running at your best. If you are prone to urgent bathroom stops, avoid your triggers and eat only low-fibre, low-fat and low-sugar foods before a run. Avoid caffeine, high-sugar products (soda and sport gels) and high-fibre foods (green vegetables, beans, bran, berries) beginning five hours before a run.  

If you are running longer distances and taking sport gels during your runs, talk to a sport dietitian for more specific advice on how to avoid stomach cramps.
