I think Americans would call it a cramp. You just have to build up your tolerance. Also, don't eat or drink too much before you run - especially anything carbonated. The more you run, the further you'll be able to go before getting the "stitch".

Yeah, you just gotta push through it. If you need to, slow down your pace & take deep slow breaths, but you don't need to quit.

Dave, I like your word, I'm trying to learn British English for my trip over there sometime in the next year

Anyway, Ben was right, just hold the sore area and keep running. I know it sucks, but no pain no gain, and it's really good if your body is mildly sore after working out.

Last week, after being paired with a fighter in class, he punched me SUPER hard in my tummy region. If I had my cam I woulda taken pictures. Anyway, it bruised a bit but it was awesome because my abs were under there and sore. I can already tell I'm going to be sore from MT and boxing tonight too.

I'll start running in a couple days, then you and me can have a race when you pass through here LOL

Me too. And Dave, don't worry about pinching/punching/poking it. Focus on belly breathing, that's what helps the most for me.

I'm a couch-to-5k disciple, I highly recommend it.

Are you talking about a cramp in your side that makes it difficult to breath? Probably means that you are not drinking enough water throughout the day.

Yes, "stitch" as in "I've got a stitch in my side".

Dave, maybe you should start out with walking rather than running and ease into it so you don't hurt yourself. You probably need to expand your lungs. You know what's good for that, swimming.

I took swimming as one of my PE's in college and for the first time I could actually run around the track easily. I think it's because of holding my breath swimming under water, it expanded my lungs making it easier for me to run without huffing and puffing.

I saw this lady in the pool at the gym the other day and she had this vest thing on. It's like she was running but in the pool. The vest helped keep her upright, but her head above water, in the deeper end. I bet you would like that better than "running". Plus, like someone else said, it's easier on your joints but still really good cardio to burn calories.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck!

I wish we had a decent pool close to me! I'd much rather swim than run. Closest indoor to me though is about 25 minutes away and I know I wouldn't go every day...
