Methods to Stop the Dreaded Stitch

Stitches can ruin a potentially good run. Understand why it occurs and pick up 4 easy tips on how you can prevent them.


Basics to running (1): Warming up

As with most sports, warm-up exercises for running are an important part of the routine. The purpose of warm-ups is to ease the muscles and lungs into more vigorous activity later on.


Basics to running (2): Posture, breathing, pacing

Having covered warm-ups in our previous Running 101, we take a look at the run itself, where there are three key aspects to be considered in order to get a more effective workout and to reduce the risk of injuries.


Basics to running (3): Cooling down
