I signed up for the livepool half marathon on the 17th march 2014. Now i am a fit and healthy person in general however i have not ran for a good while other then playing football every thursday. Now i started my running training last Sunday where i ran 5 miles, then ran again Tuesday and done 5 miles, football thursday for an hours then ran again yesterday (Sunday) and ran for 6 miles in 48 minutes. Now i am using the nike+ sport band and the chip which goes into my trainers and the programme is immense as it tells me alls i need to know about my pace, times, miles etc. However my two questions are, 1 - each time i start to run i get a stitch, why? i usually eat an hour and a half before a run, is this not long enough? and question 2 - should i try and add on an extra mile to my runs each week or every other week or do i take it more slowy? i have to be able to run 13 miles by march 17th......
