i used to get these pretty bad but i read somewhere that it helps when you adjust your breathing and land on your left foot when you exhale...forgot what was the reasoning but it works for me...i also try to really expand my diaphraghm breathing in and contract when breathing out..that seems to help as well..
Try this: Slow your pace a little bit clech your fists, take in a big breath and quickly puff it out. Exhale hard enough that your abdomen and your chest flinch.. Repeat several times until it eases. (similar to coughing) I read this somewhere and it always helped me and other runners. Give it a try and let me know if it works for you. I imagine this is a twist on the adjusting your breathing theory.
