I have got into the habit of running first thing in the morning before breakfast but I thought I'd eat something today as it seemed a bit mean to expect my body to run a full 25 minutes with no fuel. I waited an hour after eating my cereal & I felt like it had definitely gone down by the time I set off.
The stitch turned up at around the halfway mark (12.5 mins), I tried the usual tricks of slowing down, breathing deeply & pushing my stomach out but this one was a nasty one & would not budge so I ended up slowing right down to a walk. I did intervals for the rest of the time: Run until stitch gets bad, walk until stitch gets better and so on.
I feel a bit disappointed but already can't wait to try again, maybe without breakfast next time.
