    so ive been running now 5 times a week now for about 2 months and have done some reading on running. my question is about lactic acid and the burn it cause, its suposed to be a good burn, so can someone describe it to me so i know when im feeling it. sometimes i have a pain horizontal to my belly button on my left side, vertically under my left nipple, but i think thats my stomach punishing me for eating too closely to a run. so back to lactic or lactate or whatever it is, please explain.
    thankyou

    That sounds like a stitch, maybe due to the fact that you ate so close to running.

    To find out what lactic acid feels like, find a hill that takes you 1-2 minutes to walk up, preferably at a 30 degree incline.
    Now SPRINT up that fucker, jog back down and run up it again. Do it say 3 times and you'll begin to get a idea what lactic acid burn feels like

    Yeah, uh, lactic burn in the upper abdomen... not so much. That'll be a stitch as Ian suggests, caused by your stride rhythm being out of whack with your breathing rhythm.

    LSD running is great for subconsciously learning how to breathe while running. Thanks to that I haven't had a stitch in years.

    Eh, I went for a run this morning, 2nd time (1st time was last friday) in 8 weeks. It was only 3-4 miles.

    I felt bad


    I want to bloody start my lsd runs but....I think I would die (or cry from the lack of speed)

    LSD running? Anyone care to elaborate.

    And I never knew that stitches were from running too soon after eating. That's interesting. What is a good time to wait, an hour?

    FAQ or search.

    It's not caused by eating.

    Side stitch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Lactic Acid will only build up in the muscles that provide the primary movement; the legs, and when they're deprived of oxygen. If you're having pain in the abdomen it's definitely from something else

    Yeah, its from internal organs straining the diaphram, however eat a meal and wait a hour and try and run. No NO NO


    I did it once with beef wellington......I felt so bad and had to walk the last section (it took about 15 minutes for it to come on hard)

    long slow distance/duration (u guys coulda said hat instead of FAQ, took just as long) its when u jog long distances and a reasonable slow pace, which u can maintain for awhile


    an hour is a nonon, thats what happened to me, i though an hour wold be enough but no, maybe 2 hours, i try to wait 2 which makes it a pain, since if i eat dinner late and ddint exercise yet i have to run real late, so i recommend planning your run to end around an hour BEFORE ure next meal, since u should have no trouble eating AFTER a run
