I did my first tri 10 years ago so I'm not exactly a newbie. The first OLY race I did I overhydrated on the bike so I had three options: pee on the bike, stop at a portolet and pee (wasting time), or be miserable for the run. I chose the first option as I was coming in to T2. Because I was undertrained for the event, I soon found out that my perineum was raw.
I'm 11 weeks in to a 20 week HIM training program and know I probably can't do the HIM distance without going potty.
Anyway, what's your take on peeing while racing without stopping? Do it? Waste time by using a portolet or bush?
