1.5 mile is low enough intensity that you can do it every day to improve. If you're too heavy alternate with longer runs at a slower pace. Remember you're supposed to run it as fast as you can, so you're ready to drop at the end, you should be puffing and sweating, not cruising round. its only 9-10...

I eat well before excercise but I do have lots of drinks just before I go out. I go for my runs 2-3 hours after eating and drinking, never suffer from stitches. One time I had a fancy energy drink just before the run, pow, killer stitch. Give it a try. 3 HOURS IT IS THEN... AND NO TO DRINKS OTHER T...

5' 9 and your 126lbs????? you will be below the minimum BMI for a start?? Walking or stopping on your 1.5 mile will fail you straight away. Train 3 times a week each session should be over 40 minutes to get any benefit. Do press ups and situps every morning and every night in sets of ten/shake off/...
