Cheers Ant, I'll give it a go next time, or maybe I'll try the somersault method!

Nell, I controlled the stitch by slowing down to well below normal race pace - not really a tactic I want to have to use in every race!

It is very frustrating and the fact it came on after only 3.5 miles @ 6:30 pace on Sunday (when I regularly run 5-6 miles at this pace in training with no bother) suggests it is totally race specific (ie. to do with anxiety affecting breathing or something), rather than just pushing it that bit harder in races than training.

Yep way too hot Kiwi! Ran first 4 miles at PB pace, already had stitch coming on and was struggling in the heat - there was no shade anywhere on the course - so decided to ease off a bit and treat it as a hard training run. Came in at about 1:30:50, so more than 4 mins short of PB, but I never run well in the heat. Did you hear a guy collapsed and died at the finish? Only in his 30s apparently. Very sad.
Glad your comeback is going well.
Well done on the 10ks Col & Ant.
Awesome stuff KFC & FRC!

Hi all, pretty quiet on here at the moment.
Good luck for Edinburgh Nell and Col for your HM. KFC, hope you have a good park run.
17 for me tonight with 13 @ 7:09. I've dropped my mileage slightly at the moment and focusing on tempos for a bit after my 10k disappointment the other week.
Had a good result in our club 3-mile race on Wednesday - ran 18:27 and finished in 2nd Some of our quick runners were missing but even so was nice to finish in that position and happy with the time too, especially as it's not the flattest course.

Good idea Barry. I think I'll just have to start slower in races and pick it up if I'm feeling good at halfway. Tbh I might have been ok if I'd even just gone for sub-40 today but everything (including the race predictor from my last HM) was saying I should aim for low 39s so that's what I did and maybe the first 2k were too quick (6:11mm - yeah, perhaps they were!). But no, I don't get them on 5ks and they usually come on between 5-6k. Still thinking its breathing related although starting to wonder about my racing flats, which I rarely use for anything other than intervals in training. More impact going through the body perhaps?
Good luck with the tris Ant and kfc and to any other racers tomorrow.

2Old, still think I'd feel a hernia at least a bit at other times than racing. Nothing (other than perhaps just working a bit harder than I'm used to) seems to explain why it only happens in races. I do think it's breathing related though so hopefully I'll be ok in a marathon as my breathing should be much easier. 10ks seem to be worst for it.

I do core most days, Nell. And it's entirely race specific, so if it was down to core/eating or whatever I'm sure it would trouble me in training sometimes too

Possibly O4S, although the threshold must be marginal so if that's what it is I'm not sure how to judge races - other than running them no faster at all than I've done in training!

Nell, I've only been doing long runs without eating, so did have some toast this morning. Really don't think it's anything to do with it though. I think it's just one of those things. Sounds like you (or your 11-year-old) made a sensible decision.

Never even a hint of one in training Barry. I even ran a 10k tempo in training a couple of weeks ago in 40mins dead on a much more hilly route than today's race without any problems so thought I was on for a storming run today. I just don't understand it...
