Im hoping someone can offer some advice......I've been injured since Jan and I have only just started up again. i've been following a couch to 5k but feeling disheartened as i can't seem to get my breathing right and im really struggling at the moment.....
I have always struggled with this and never mastered it but really feel if i'm going to get a good 10k time i need to ask for help
The trick is to empty your lungs fully. Force every last bit of air out. Then you can draw in a full breath.
Its a race technique to avoid shallow breathing.
Full breath out, full breath in.
Breath in time with your steps and count the steps.
In - 2 - 3, out - 2 - 3, in - 2 - 3, out - 2 - 3.
I breath every third step but that may be different for you.
i run the same way as Lou
but i agree with Jim, ive been running about 10min/mile this week - did 2.5 miles at 12min/mile on my 5am run this morning and felt great
so slow down your pace
lou Diamonds, that's exactly the same as me.
Just ease up on your pace, you'll be fine.
