Bloated

I must say overall except for an initial Iliotibial Band Syndrome - IT Band Syndrome, I've been pretty healthy. But, since I'm human... I will falter. And falter I did. CONSTIPATION. I'm not talking about the kind that once you get the big bullet out of your system, you're fine. I had one that just turns old men into children. It all started after my small 10k trail running out on MacLehose Trail - Stage 3 (Pak Tam Au). I went buffet style and I pigged out. Of course, no one else in my party had this problem! In the eveing, I even threw up after eating Ramen noodles. I thought it would be fine the next day - I was wrong... It seemed even worse. I couldn't even stand up at times. Finally I went to the doctor 2 days later and he gave me medication. I told him what I ate (as if he cared) and he just said it was indigestion. So, after analysing my eating habit - I would have to say that drinking lots of water (2-3 liters) is so important. I use to drink that much daily but, it's hard to consume... I think it was a virus though.
