Todays run result in NO side cramps. Here's how I managed it... I went running with a buddy and we talked the whole time. I realized after the run that by talking, I wasn't breathing as shallow as I had been. Nothing else changed in my daily routine so for me, it's defiantly the breathing!

You might have been breathing different too. I mean, you are out in the rain, thinking about that. Just doing something totally different. Sometimes if I get too caught up in something I forget to breathe as deeply as I should. So it could be that then causing the side stitch. And if you were running faster/harder than normal to try and get out of the rain, that'll do it too.

I have the same question/ problem... I get side cramps whether I eat or not. What exactly causes these?

Hi Twin,

It's hard to say. Did you eat too close to going out on your run? Did you pick up your pace more than you have in the past? I would not allow one isolated episode scare you into thinking this is a long time problem.

Ok, so my half is less than 2 weeks away. It is POURING here today, but I needed to get a short run in, so I headed out for 4 miles. At mile 3, I got the most awful cramp in my side. I have not had one of those since high school when we used to run "suicide sprints" during basketball practice. WHY? WHAT CAUSED THIS? Ahhhh.....I hope this doesn't become a recurring problem now. Advice? Thanks team.
