Nornal Running Help With Breathing
Can any one help with any ways to control breathing. I run 4 - 5 times a week 1 @ 5k, 3 @ 10k, 1 @ 15 - 18k
My breathing is always really hard. I eat healthy have between 7 t o 8 hiurs sleep. Even though I'm eating healthy could it be I'm not eating enough or too much!!. I am try to loose a 1 stone in weight as well.
I run the evening with the exception of my long run on a sunday morning 8.30am.
I did a 10k back in September took me 1hr 2mins, i did it again yesterday and was the same time but me breathing was really bad try ti run at racepace for the whole 10k!!!.
I'm bothered cause I'm doing a half marathon in March wont be able to get round cause my breathing?
Can any1 one help at all.
I'm female 45 yrs young. Office job, married with two grown up children. I work 07.30 - 16.00 so up at 5.30.
Hmmm that's a strange one, I think we all have bad days (I certainly do) when i wonder if I've ever ran before!! But if you're running 4-5 times a week your fitness levels must be pretty good. As Squeaks says, maybe try and focus on the breathing and nothing else next time. Whenever I take note of my breathing I'm around 1 breath to every 3 strides. Maybe check how many strides you're doing to 1 breath and maybe try and settle into that. Eventually I hope you can get out of over-thinking the breathing as that maybe making things worse, IE anxiety creeping in about it etc.
Let us know how you get on.
