How to Ditch the Stitches

Q: I used to run 5-6 miles a day, 4 times a week but quit about 4 years ago. Now whenever I try to hit the pavement I cannot go for more than 5 minutes without getting severe cramping. Do you know what causes the stitches and is there any way to prevent this recurring issue?







I feel your pain! Muscle cramps can occur for a few reasons: Working out on “cold” muscles” (not stretching or warming up), dehydration, heat/humidity, shallow breathing, and eating too much before you workout. Your issue could be one or a combination of all of these. A common problem in your case is trying to regain your distance, speed and intensity from earlier days of running.

Try warming up (power walking) for 5 minutes and then stretching. Also, be sure to increase your mileage slowly and take long deep breaths while out on the road or treadmill. If a stitch or cramp does occur, stop or slow your pace. Drink some water. Stretch out the muscle and take deep breaths. You should be back to your peak running form in no time. Good luck.
