Side Stitches

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Jeff Galloway (former Olympian, best selling running book author, running coach to zillions of people) said something else I thought was helpful in his presentation on Saturday. He said to prevent getting a stitch in the side when running to breath deeply, like you do when you are asleep. Put your hands on your abdomen to make sure your lungs are expanding all the way down. Chest breathing causes the problem. He said that eating or drinking too much before running can make it difficult to breath correctly. Good to know!
