running stitch


Recommended Posts


I'm on day 13 of whole30 and every run I've been on in the last 2 weeks I've got a stitch after about 1-2km. I was running before I started whole30, same distances, with no problems. I rarely get stitches so I can't work out why now!

Anyone experienced this during their whole30? I don't know that it is related, but I can't think of anything else.

I know personally if I have anything in my stomach before I goto athletics, I feel heavy and sluggish. Then I usually get a stitch from that. So I've started eating 2 hours before I run.

Upping your water could help too big time! Running while dehydrated stucks... You might need a few more extra calories too if your runs are long and intense?

Try making slight changes and see what works for you. Hope you get it sorted!

It's probably not the Whole 30, but fruit before a run? Yikes! The only thing worse would be nuts before a run.

I love nuts and fruit before and during long runs. Never had any problems.

The best PWO meal is the 10-20 lbs of adipose tissue we carry around.

But this is the best quote ever! Totally agree!
