Dolomedes vitatus, a scripted fishing spider, is what it looks like to me. Possibly a different Dolomedes species. During the Russian Winter Olympics there were signs in some hotels over the toilets showing a “No Fishing” pictogram. That’s what came to my mind when I saw that you have a spider fishing in your toilet. The good news is that your body isn’t what it is hunting. They hunt insects as well as aquatic things, it may have chased some bug to the toilet. Hopefully you scooped it out and set it free outdoors.
