Hi everyone! I'm running my first 5k Sunday morning (10am) and I have two questions I would love your input on.
The first is how much should I eat before I run and how long before I run should I eat it? I usually run 2-3 hours after lunch so I'm not sure if my usual breakfast is too much/little to run on.
And second I occasionally (like on my run today) get really painful side stitches when I run. Any words of wisdom of how to prevent these or alleviate them while still running? I really don't want to have to stop or walk during my first 5k!
Thanks so much for your advice!
