So as of the last few weeks I have been going to the gym to not only build upper body muscle but also burn calories. Right now for cardio I am doing couch to 5k program and stuck on week 2 of the program as I keep getting a "runner's side stitch". Can not seem to find a way to not get one no matter what the h**l I do. It is very very frustrating and was hoping some one could give me some ideas on how to not develop one, or if anyone who has ever got one has found a way to to conquer this problem besides just fighting through the pain!

I've recently started getting a stitch when I run even though I never used to get them.

There's no real known cause. I always thought it was lack of oxygen/build up of lactic acid but I've read that it's caused by ligament strain from the liver and spleen pulling on the diaphram. Apparently, trying to exhale when your left foot lands can help. I just slow down a little and try to slow my breathing. My stitch tends to start as a pain in my right shoulder blade and then if I don't slow down it moves into a proper side stitch, which then means I have to start walking until it eases off.

I'm sure some of it is in my mind. I've stopped following C25K and now just run for as long as I can. I can run about 3km non-stop and if I'm not thinking about it, I find it easy. The minute I start concentrating on running/breathing I start getting a stitch. LOL!

In other news, I've stopped being a whiny bitch and I'm just getting on with things. More running, more sit ups, more push ups. My weight has dropped back down again and I'm currently sitting at 128.5lb/9st 2.5lb/58.2kg. :)

Mix in some core exercises to reduce run-related pains. You know the ones I follow, try them.

I actually do not remember the ones you folllow. I am assuming that I could find them with some searching of your old Posts here in the USCM work out topic or your face book posts dom(I have no problem searching to find them)? Also these core exercises I would do them like right before I do my cardio(running on a treadmill) or is there x amount of time I need to wait after doing them before running?

So this might sound stupid, but is there any way to build up muscle and all without lifting weights?
I'm not a pansy or nuthin', I just can't afford weights or anything.

Yeah, they're called bodyweight exercises. Basically just do things like push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups and squats. Then when you can easily do 100 of each you modify the exercise to make it more difficult. Like doing incline push-ups, decline situps, changing your grip position for the pull-ups.

Wikipedia has a nice list of the kinds of things you can try - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bodyweight_exercise

100 push ups should help, I've been doing it for a week and from not being able to do 1 (seriously) I can now do 10 comfortably before having to really push. (How weedy do I sound!!!)
I'm starting the sit ups one and squats one tomorrow too. :)

Gotta start somewhere eh.

I was never able to do push-ups. Now at the grand age of 34, I can manage about 5 'proper' ones before I have to drop to my knees. Oh, how I dream about being able to do 10 in a row! ;)

I can do ten if I really push myself.
As for situps? Those seem markedly easier.

Glad I'm not the only one push-ups don't like!

Now I try to do sets of ten, each with my hands wider apart to work different muscles. I want to die at the end of 4 sets but Im noticing a differance in strength, tone (if you can call it that) and how hard I push myself to keep going.

I'll be looking like Bane in no time!

Ive had a good week back at it , got two p90x routines in this week 245 or some such pushups in chest and back , feels good to be sore all over again , im working on just going a little slower (better form)and a little less weight to not aggravate the shoulder , run 10.5 miles this week as well , my immediatte future plans are running 3.5-5 miles three times a week , and two full p90x sessions a week .

Another thing you could try (while it might sound "nuts") is lifting plastic shopping bags filled with water.

Water is actually pretty heavy so you don't need much in the bag for it to provide some decent resistance.

While doing push ups or chin ups will be great for your chest and back, you can supplement this by doing arm curls with the water bags for your biceps. It would take a bit of practice, but I think you could do shoulder exercises such as presses or side raises with them as well...

Just do them outside in the backyard in case the bags break. :wink:

I've been doing rucks alot lately.

Some buddies and I grab our rucksacks, toss in some weight, and hike for a few miles.

I'm working on 45lbs for 3 miles in under 45 minutes.

Holy shit Bro! :shock:

So, like... if there was an atomic bomb about to go off (and you had the time) you could run far enough away from the blast zone!

Anyone made any progress yet?
I've really only stuck to 20 pushups on the stairs every other day, but I'm pretty sure I'm seeing progress.

A 21-month journey has taken me to this point: In 7 days, I run my first marathon; from Buffalo, NY to Niagara Falls, ON.

Let this be a testament to all of you- Anything is possible with a measure of determination and a good pair of running shoes. If I can do it, you can also. :delta:
