2012 Training Day 97: 12K in Arusha

Did 12K in the evening then stretched thoroughly. After 8Km, my bladder was close to exploding and I also needed to go for a big one. I tried but I couldn't hold it. I stopped running and started walking scanning the environment. I was gritting my teeth from the effort of holding it all in. I couldn't relax my muscles or everything was gonna rush out. There were either farms or homes on each side of the road. No bushes. No latrines. Gosh! WTF!
Then I got lucky. I spotted a latrine behind some shops and the door was open! There is a God! I jogged into it and could have kissed the owner. Damn. That was tough.
This was a solid week even though I may have misbehaved diet wise.
