On an a.m. run, when you're feeling stabby Running jostles your internal organs -- including your diaphragm -- up and down. If you're gulping for air as you hit your second mile, it can trap air in your diaphragm and cause it to spasm. The result? Painful stitches and cramps. To prevent those annoying jabs, try changing the pattern of your inhale and exhale ratios to three steps per exhalation and two steps per inhalation. This pattern ensures that the foot hitting the ground when you breathe out alternates between left and right, keeping your diaphragm even while you run.
