Brief Answer: take a laxative Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX This is Dr. Ashish Verma, a general surgeon, answering to your query. You can take a laxative like tablet dulcolax at say around 7 pm (preferably two of them) the previous day. Also have your dinner a little early by the same time (7 pm), have some thing light, preferably liquid, if possible. Get up by three and drink a glass of water or two, you show be cleared in 15 mins, i hope. Take a small walk in the home, if needed to build the pressure. Hope i have answered to all your queries. If you have further queries, i will be glad to answer them. Best of luck of the marathon. Dr. Ashish Verma
