Sorry I don't know anything, but perhaps - Galloway's method of interval of running and walking.

Here's a good article that will explain osteoarthritis...what it is, symptoms, treatment, types of appropriate exercise:

http://www.webmd.com/osteoarthritis/guid
e/osteoarthritis-basics

Definitely confirm with your doctor what types of exercise are appropriate for you personally, as every person is different. It may be that you have to switch up your preferred cardio exercise to something that is lower-impact...if you love running, maybe your doctor could tell you if speed-walking would be a good substitute, as it's low impact.

I just wanted to provide an update, as I got some really good advice from you all. I've been playing around, and my issue is gone if I do one of the following:

* Run first thing in the morning (I'll have just a small cup of coffee and a small granola bar first)

* Wait 3 hours or more after eating before I run, if my last meal was big. If it was more like a snack, I can get away with waiting as little as 1.5 hours.

So thank you for the advice! My running seems to be getting back on track thanks to your help.

I'm almost always a morning runner, before I've had anything to eat. Occasionally, I'll have a piece of bread or something if it's a long time from when I wake up to when I run, but generally nothing. I've never experienced what you describe. However, running after I have anything in my belly, even four hours earlier, makes me sick beyond belief. I can get a run in, but it's a pathetic excuse for a run. I'd definitely try a morning run if I were you and see what happens! Good luck! (:

Keep on tracking your food and timing to see when you can actually start to run with no effects.

I've done a little research, and it appears that maybe I have GERD. Apparently, I need to wait 2-3 hours after eating before I exercise...most of the time, I am definitely not waiting that long. Like I said, yesterday I waited 2.5 hours and did see some improvement...so I will try waiting a little longer or exercising first thing in the morning to see if that helps.

Thanks for all the input! I really enjoy running, and want to make sure I keep it up without all the discomfort.

I am quite sure things need time to digest, unless it is a light meal.

Hmm...well, today I waited 2.5 hours after eating lunch before I ran. Though it wasn't as severe as it usually is, I still got the "heartburn" feeling. I've never actually run first thing in the morning before eating, so maybe I need to give that a try and see if that makes a difference.

I'm usually a morning runner, but the other night I ran after dinner - maybe 45 minutes. I had heartburn. I never notice heartburn in the AM. My dinner was fairly large too.

Thank you for that advice...maybe I am running too soon after eating, or perhaps eating too much before running. Good idea about the log...I log what I eat and what I do for exercise, but I don't put times on them...can I add in times to my logs anywhere on SparkPeople?

I used to wait about 1 hour after I ate. Try eating smaller portions. Keep a record of what you ate and how much and if the "heartburn" pain comes on - when it does. Not much more ideas from me.

OK...this is going to seem like a really weird question, but does anyone feel like bodily functions hinder their training progress?

When I run, whether on a treadmill or outside, I get what feels like heartburn every single time. I can't figure out why...I switch up what time I run, I don't always eat the same thing before I run, and I always wait until at least 30 minutes after I've eaten to run.

It's frustrating, because I am training for a 10K and I really want to finish in under an hour. But when I'm running and this "heartburn" feeling happens, I have to slow down my pace until it subsides. Because if I don't slow down, I feel almost like I'm going to vomit...this happens throughout the entire run, so I am constantly having to take breaks.

Does anyone know what might be going on? Surely there must be some term for this, and something I can do to keep this from happening. I'm new to running (started in Sept. 2009), so I'm not exactly an expert on protocol and technique...maybe I'm not doing something I should be.

Thanks in advance for help!
