Likely, runner's stitches. They're awful and can stop you dead in your tracks. From what I've read the causes are largely unknown. There's a few theories, however.

You can read more about it here:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Side_stitch

I find if I eat something, especially fruit before exercising I get them but sometimes still get them when exercising in a fasted state.

You can either take a break for a bit from exercising and stop and massage the area but a lot of times I find it returns quickly again when you start back up. I find a good abdominal stretch helps with a 5-10 minute break.

ETA: I just realized you said "upper chest". Runner's stitches occur below the ribcage. Sorry, I jumped the gun there.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I am trying to increase my running intervals during my fitness walk. I am up to only 1/4 mile. Today, after I slowed down, I had a very sharp and quick pain in my upper chest. By the time I grabbed my chest it was gone and I was fine to walk the rest of the way. I really don't feel this was heart related, but does anyone know what it might be?

Now or Never!
