You could duck tape up your mouth if you wanted to. But its easiest to just breathe through your mouth - you'll get air much easier that way. My mouth is far bigger than my nose!
As to building up speed - just keep up steady running - most runs to be done at a pace you could chat at. It takes a bit of time, but you will get faster. Consistency is the key.
Love you too !
Dear cougie , thank you so much for your replay , so is it ok to breath from one's mouth ? i did unofficial 5 k in 26 mintues , my goal is to do 10 k in 3 month any reasonable time to finsih ? thankssssssssssss
54'09" sounds right for a 10k based on your 5k time (well done btw). There are many calculators that estimate your time based on other race times - clicky
dear andi thanks a million for you respond , you guys are the best , i feel so much encouraged and supported
