I'm more or less a beginner, I've been running for just over a year, on and off, and now I'm training for my first half-marathon. My longest runs each week are currently 8 miles and then on other days I do short and fast(er) 2 mile circuits.
I've discovered a really irritating problem in these stitches I am getting. I seem to develop them sporadically and I can't find a pattern to it. When I was a child I used to get stitches when exercising too soon after eating but I take great care to allow for enough time (about 1 hr 30 min) after eating for digestion. It is intensely frustrating because I just can't seem to run through these stitches, they just flare up even more the longer I continue to run.
Can anyone offer any advice/knowledge and does anyone have any techniques for dealing with stitches when they occur?
