|Subject: ||RE: Stitches, breathing, and racing |
Thanks for the reply, t94bell. How long have you been stitch free? I do avoid dairy for between 12-24 hrs before a big race, so I don't think that's the issue. The main area of discomfort is center/right, just below the ribcage. I've heard the ribcage can rub the abs or diaphragm? However, if this was the case, why would I only experience the stitch in longer races and not 5ks, intervals, or tempo runs? I really want to correct this problem, because otherwise my training is going well and I find pushing myself at longer distances is quite enjoyable.
