    What do you mean by cramps in your stomach? Similar to that of a calf/hamstring cramp?

    Sounds kind of weird to me.

    How long are you waiting after you eat to run?

    I get a lot of gas when I start running, so I have to burp a lot. You may have gas buildup.

    Not really my stomach, it's my side, near my ribs. I ate today like an hour and a half before.

    I get that sometimes, too. Actually, I just started doing the Guerilla Cardio this week, doing it as soon as I wake up and before I eat or anything. Completely empty stomach. And, honestly, I have to say that besides being worn out I feel great. No cramps or anything. Of course, maybe it's because the workout is so short, or maybe it's because it's done in a fairly fasted state. Anyway, just to let you know, I feel your pain, and when I do I usually just try to work through it.

    Sounds like a runners 'stitch'. Have you just recently added those exercises to your routine? If so, you probably need to reduce the time/intensity and give your body time to adapt.
