The advice given in the C25K app and podcasts regarding stitch is to slow down and breathe deeply......it has worked for me.

If you are wanting to ask advice of the community, the best way is to create a new post, rather than reply to an existing post.

Sorry if I’m being dense but I’m looking for an article about shin splints which I read about 8 months ago. Thought it would be the link above but that goes to a recent post. Could you let me know where to look?

Individuals may post links to articles but they aren't necessarily stored on this site.

This might help runnersworld.com/shin-splints/

Would you be able to post the link to knee strengthening exercises, please. I saw a reference to it (By you, I think) when searching “sore knees” but when I went looking for it again, couldn’t find the post. Much appreciated. Thanks.
