Before I ask, thought I'd just quickly introduce myself.

I am preparing for a officer training. Got a date for a POC last summer, was excited about it but failed my medical due to honesty, as well as sore knees while running. But that's taken care of now, until I had another slight set back and have to wait yet another year as I take a surprise gap year.

Anyway my question has to do with eating and running (I know you can't do both at the same time...). Ever since I started running properly which was about 3 or 4 years ago I seem to have trouble... digesting food which causes pain when I run. It's not that suddenly I have trouble digesting it, but I find that even 3 hours after eating something I can still feel it in my stomach.

The other day I had a small breakfast, bowl of cereal (can't remember which, something healthy I think) and was considering going for a run but thought I should have some lunch first and had a small bagel. Two and a half hours later I went for a run, wishing before I had just gone on my run and when I did I felt really ill. The same happened today, and I only ate a bowl of cereal (not so healthy) and waited 3 or 4 hours for my. I still felt ill but I finished it and other wise it was a good run.

I could understand if I'd only waited just over an hour after a dish of lasagne which occurred at school but this is getting weird and annoying.

A few other factors that might help:
- I haven't been doing as much intense running as before, during summer I was running up and down Dartmoor three times a week plus upper body workout. Recently I've only been able to get out once a week in a city due to work, but this weekend uped my workout.
- Bowels are fine, never been better.
- Cutting down on drink, like a beer every other night. Usually it's a light yeasty ale and occasionally I wake up feeling slightly hung over even though I don't drink the night before.
- I'm in America, could it be to do with the food or something?

Anyone have similar issues or any advice? I thought maybe it's a slow metabolism but seeing as I can eat a lot I haven't put on any bad weight and I'm cutting down on junk food.

Drink a decent amount of water before you go running,
also take a dump about an hour before,
this will flush out most of the bulk from your stomach.
