Proper breathing technique during a run or race (Read 1175 times)

    My wife and I were out on Tuesday and she was mentioning that I breath a lot harder than she does while we are running.  That I should try her technique of even slow breathes.


    I couldn't hear her all that well since she was about 1/2 a mile behind me and slowing to a walk at the time.


    I always found that if I worry about my legs my brain worries about my lungs.

      Breathe often. Mostly easy, sometimes hard.






      I run. Therefore I am.

        in then out is method that works best for me.  on occasion, just to mix it up a bit, i do the out then routine...but that's crazy as i'm willing to get with it all.

        You don't need shoes to run anymore than you need a hat to think.
