For running stitches, SLOW DOWN. And try breathing on the footfall opposite the stitch (so if you have a LH stitch, breathe on the right footstrike).

Also, see if you can pinpoint what you did when the stitch happened. I can't run without getting a stitch when I've eaten too close to going. On the bike it's better.

breathing deeper will definitely help. i've also found that hydration plays a role for me.
Go SPIN and take a break if you must!

I have to ditto what Shiva has said. I have found if I slow my breathing and take deeper breathes that they will go away eventually.

This works for me.

Just blast through the stitch. It won't hurt you. It does help me to deepen my breathing.

I have found since I am doing more strength training I don't get them as often. It may also help to slow your speed a bit.

How do you make them go away?! I was running on the treadmill last night, and got a nasty one near my him. Went walking this am, and got a REALLY painfull one on the other side, under my ribs! I'm supposed to go to spin tonight, but I'd hate to get there, get set up, then bail after 5 minutes!
