    Every morning, i jog around the park, after a while my belly area gets hurt and I am very tired. Do you know why does that happens ?
    Thanks, God bless you!

    Does it hurt on the left? That is where your spleen is located, it is an organ through which a lot blood is circulating. During excersize the increased flow of blood can make the organ sensitive.

    You should always do a warming-up before excersize. Doing this properly will probably take care of this problem.
