Body : Getting into a running routine can be rough. Side stitches, achy joints, chafing. Luckily we have some pro tips for you — emphasis on the “pro.” Brooks Beasts head coach Danny Mackey shares how to overcome some common running maladies:

SIDE STITCH

Slow down a bit and try “belly breathing.” Push your belly out during deep breaths. You can also press on the stitch and try to stretch out the muscle tissue. It might look silly, but it can help. Sometimes it’s okay to pause your run for a bit.

LEG CRAMPS

Don’t try to push through muscle cramps. Stopping for a minute will help the muscle relax. Do some light stretching and try to drink some water or take in some electrolytes in case the cramp was caused by dehydration.

BLISTERS

Prevention is key. Make sure your socks and shoes fit properly with no extra fabric or loose spots. If you can feel a blister starting, try to adjust the problem spot early. If you can’t, treat the blister at home by cleaning it and covering it with a flexible bandage. You may have to cover it for a few runs until you develop a callus.

CHAFING

Just like blisters, chafing can be prevented with gear that fits. If you’re a guy, try using fabric tape to prevent nipple chafing — not as weird as it sounds. If you’re running in rain or for longer distances, use anti-chafe creams to put a protective layer between fabric and sensitive skin.

SHIN SPLINTS

Try running on soft surfaces like packed dirt or gravel. If you get shin splints frequently, work on strengthening your lower legs as well as your hips. When the muscles around your shins don’t have to do the more than necessary, you might find your overall strength improves too.
