  1. @Something Funny I've tried taking electrolyte drinks/tablets before and during my runs but I've never gotten any blood tests or anything like that to actually measure my electrolyte levels. I do find it helps a bit but I still experience this issue.
  2. @Leo Gura I guess it's not necessary. I run regular marathons without any issue so I just wanted to challenge myself. I've met people who run 100 mile ultra marathons and this made me believe that running 50 miles is more than possible for me. Perhaps I'm naive and this is my limit.
  3. My goal this year is to finish a 50 mile ultra marathon and I've been working towards this goal these last few months. Prior to this, 26 miles is the longest I've ever run in one session, as this is usually the length of a standard marathon. I've been noticing during my runs that I hit a wall betwen miles 30-35. I start feeling a tingling sensation on my jaw, hearing white noise, and sometimes even my vision starts streaking/fading. Fatigue usually follows, I can push through it for a bit but my pace slows down considerably and I'm not nearly as efficient with my strides. I initially thought this had to do with nutrition so I cleaned up my diet making sure I had a hearty meal the night before, I even tried consuming gels during the runs for the added energy and to top up my glycogen stores. Perhaps it will take my body longer to get used to running these distances. I'm curious if anyone has ever experienced anything like this?
  4. This is a great list. I'm personally a big fan of number 5.
  5. My boyfriend works 10-12 hour days right now, we don't live together so it's hard to meet during the week. I don't know how often people crave it, but 4 days without sexual activities seems really long for me.
  6. @A_v_E I've personally never met a guy who didn't like having their head eaten during copulation. I kid.. I see your point.
  7. @BirdNerd Thanks for sharing your experience! This is me right now haha . I've been incredibly unproductive at work since I've stopped masturbation, I think of sex all day. Thankfully I'm working from home next week so I should have less distractions... Did you abstain from all sexual activities during the 90 days? I'd like to experience this. I don't know if I'll be able to though, since I'm only really doing no fap during the week days.
  8. @Leo Gura Can you elaborate on this? How would this look like in practice?
  9. @Knowledge Hoarder I don't think I'm aware enough to notice what this habit hampers because I've been doing it for so long. It's been a little over 24 hours since I last did it and I already feel quite a bit different. My mind seems much open to sexual thoughts and I notice myself more turned on when I view certain pictures/images. I have a clear schedule of masturbation during the week and sex during the weekends so I think it's possible this could lead to better sex with such a long break between. I guess only time will tell.
  10. When is sex abused in your opinion? Does it depend on frequency?
  11. A few of my guy friends are doing this, I also see a good amount of posts about no fap here so I thought I'd find out more and maybe give it a try. I alternate between using a toy and the shower head in my bathroom.
  12. There's a lot of good information in this thread. I wasn't aware of a lot this stuff prior to this thread. Thanks guys and gals! I've decided to try no fap. I usually masturbate twice a day during the week, this gets replaced by regular sex during the weekends when I sleep over at my boyfriend's place or he stays at mine. I plan to cut masturbation out entirely for the time being. I feel like it's cruel on some level to deprive my boyfriend of sex so I'm going to leave sex on the table for now. I don't have any expectations on benefits so I'll just see how it goes I guess. I think one of the struggles will be falling asleep at night. I didn't masturbate last night and I had a tough time falling asleep. Masturbation is a great way for me to relax before bed, I'll definitely need to find another activity to unwind before bedtime or I'll relapse quick haha. Another thing that I've noticed today is that my mind seems much more open to sexual thoughts. I have to redirect my attention to other things or I end up feeling horny at work which is feels a bit awkward. I'm hoping this changes after I get more accustomed to no fap.
  13. @Leo Gura That's pretty funny, I never knew that's what it stands for. @bambi Sex is also sensory pleasure. Do you think you should abstain from all sexual activities if your goal is to maximize happiness and reaching peak states of consciousness?
  14. @Pavement This is interesting, I wasn't aware of energy loss due to ejaculation. I experience a significant loss of energy after sex, depending on how well rested I am and how long it lasts. This doesn't seem to be the case when I masturbate though.
  15. @Raze Vynce made some good points about dopamine depravation in his post that seem to make sense to me. Do you masturbate without watching porn? Aren't you imagining porn in your mind if you do this?
