  1. RUN
    good 3 mi 00:25 08:20 pace

    It went good but still got a side ache but I ran against the side ache and eventually it went away! Going to try and step it up this week and go for the 6 by the end of the week.

      Most likely culprit is lack of oxygen. If you're breathing too shallow (ie hyperventilating) you get that nasty side stitch! Simple fix....slow down a bit. Focus on endurance first and you can always circle back later for speed! Nice going pushing through today!

      Agree with James that shallow breathing is the more likely culprit but instead of slowing down recommend focusing on breathing in through your nose and exhaling out your mouth. It works! Every time I've found a side stich coming on I realize I'd gotten lazy with my breathing...takes a bit to get used to inhaling through your nose but definitely eliminates the shallow breathing issue!

      Watch your breathing and try to keep it even while you're running. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Deep diaphramatic breaths are better than shallow chest breaths but take some practice.

      Jake, try this. It takes some practice but it does become second nature fairly quickly. I haven't had much problem with side aches but I've still adopted this method.

      I think that breathing is a big thing. Inhale as deep as you can through your nose, and breathe out of your mouth. Learn to pay attention to your breathing while running. I think that the side pains will eventually get better.

      Not enough hydration can also contribute to that sensation!
