GI issues....it's about time.

WARNING: What I am about to write about is poop....plain and simple. If you have issues with poop then don't read any further.

My stomach has been all jacked up for the last 5 days. I am pretty sure it's all that granola that I have been eating that I got for free. It has a bunch of flax in it and my body is not used to it but the stuff is so damn good. Anyways..... nothing has been coming out like it usually has and I am farting up a storm all day. I'm talking room clearer's and stuff that'll make your eyes water. Not my usual flower smelling farts. ha!
So today I went to the bathroom for a movement 3 times before I went for my run. The last one was right before I took off and I just knew that it wasn't going to do the trick. So off I went from J&A's to the trail and @ mile 2 it was like the Guns of the Navorone were about to blow out by back side. Good lord this was off the charts. I actually had to stop running and even walking was causing me issues. I finally made it to the iron bathroom at the 4.5 mi marker. I was about 2.25 into my run. To be blunt..... I destroyed that bathroom. Something was coming out of me that wasn't human. Finally I feel as though I am completely empty and can't possibly have anything more in my entire body. I exit the bathroom and start my run. At this time I have to totally rework my workout. I was suppose to do 2 minutes hard, 1 minute easy 10 times. I just didn't have it in me anymore. So I changed it to run as hard as you can until you finish. I haven't done that lately and I just wanted to be done with my run. With about .75 miles left my stomach made this ungodly gurgle and then I farted for what seemed like 2 minutes. Once the fart gave out my stomach cramped and I was back to feeling like my intestines were going to come out of me. What the hell is wrong with me I asked myself. Now I am caught with trying to run fast so I can finish and also not trying to run fast so I don't shit my pants. I make it back to J&A's and of course the bathroom is occupied. So I stood there for about 2 minutes doing the "Please don't let me shit my pants" dance. Once in the bathroom about died. I never knew I had that much.....whatever in my body. Good lord.
I am hoping this will all pass and I will start being normal again...... or at least I am hoping my insides will be normal again. I am running after work tomorrow so we'll see how that goes.

Workouts for today:
Morning spin with Mags. Not the hardest workout I have ever done but I think I was a gear off the entire time.
After work I ran the Outhouse 7 miler. 7.21 in 56:31. My first 2.5 miles were at a 8:30 pace. The last 5 were at a 7:30 pace.

introduce more fiber into the diet SLOWLY....SLOWLY... :)

also flax has a lot of omega-3 fatty acids...good for you and your brain....your GI system takes some time to get used to those too

Holy crap...

flax does not agree with my system. I know if I eat it that I need it in small amounts and need to stay around the house until it's completely "processed"

Great detail Logan. Pictures next time may make your point a little more clear...

I had a very similar experience last week and I wasn't eating that granola. Maybe it was going around -- or maybe it was the 3 straight days of black beans.
