Jogging, Breathing With Awareness

I've been jogging 3 miles at a stretch recently.  It may not seem like a lot but when you're not in running condition it can be uncomfortable.  During a recent trot I felt a "stitch" on my right side. I know it helps to stop and apply pressure under the rib cage to the edge of the diaphragm muscle, breathing deeply while doing so. But I didn't want to stop so I just breathed into the space while continuing to jog.  It disappeared!
