    Does this happen to you??

    Maybe I'm getting on a bit....but about 5 months ago I was doing a climb and as I went past a ride buddy he decided to race...to which I happily agreed..lol
    anyway I left him for dust ( sorry) but decided to try and get a PR on strava so I kept the pace till I reached the top....where I then had to wait for the others
    anyway was going my absolute limit...my heart was banging...but I also felt like I was going to piss myself at the same time....I never needed to go 5 mins ago...by the time I slowed my HR down ...all was good

    this now seems to happen every time I go to the limit....most recently on Sunday ...but this time when I reached the top I seem to struggle to breathe too...it's like my brain doesn't know what to do ...slow the HR, slow the breathing or stop me from pissing myself

    i must note I haven't pissed myself yet....give it time..lol

    I sometimes have the conundrum of wanting a wee, yet also passing wind. But not on a bike..

    It could be worse... quite common to lose control after extreme physical efforts...have you seen the athletes at the London marathon?

    Unfortunately, this never happens to me. Give it time, though

    This is a natural physiological reaction, your body needs to divert blood to vital organs to survive and part of the reaction, like fight or flight, is to void unnecessary diversions and weight so you are likely to piss and shit yourself and vomit as well.

    I find that the urge to pee comes on very quickly. If I know I can't stop it it goes away but if I know there is somewhere to stop discreetly in a short distance I'm almost pissing myself by the time I do stop (I have favoured spots on my regular routes). And before anyone says anything its not my age/prostate that is fine and I've been like if for 20 years.

    Whether it was the efforts or not I recall a race where I felt I needed a pee and I kept saying to myself I'd stop on the next lap but kept going then at the finish I was involved in a huge crash as we sprinted for the line and removed large amounts of skin from my body. I forgot all about needing to pee until I got home a couple of hours later (and no I didn't piss myself when I crashed)!

    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.
