Getting Sick while running

Options
So if I throw up while running do I get to deduct those calories from my dairy. What percentage of calories do you deduct? How do you calculate absorption rates and what percentage is water?

    What? If I was sick, I'd just give up for the day and sleep it off in bed, no more calorie counting for that day. That should even it out as you won't be counting the calories for dinner.

    It depends on how long it's been since you've eaten.

    within 15 minutes 100% deduction
    within 30 minutes 75% deduction
    within 45 minutes 50% deduction
    withing an hour 25% deduction

    After 60 minutes no deduction in calories for throwing up.

    but what if there is food in there?

    Damn, I am sure there has to be some calories in those chunks after 60 minutes.

    I run with my food scale so when I throw up I can at least measure it, then deduct properly from there.

    This is the only accurate way I can think of calculating it.....

    Likewise runner's trots earns you 50% more calories for having to do a knock-kneed waddle all the way to the nearest toilet.

    Good Point. I will need to add some extra calories next time I poop myself on a run.

    You can apply the water test as well. Weigh yourself before all runs and then weigh yourself after your runs.
    You do this on a regular basis, you will know your sweat profile and then on throw-up days, you can adjust accordingly.
