Breathing feels like it should be easy, like something that should come naturally - after all you do it all the time, right?
This is one of the topics that comes up really regularly in Learn to Run as often breathing is one of the biggest struggles for a new runner, or someone returning to running. In this episode I talk about:
- Mouth breathing vs nose breathing
- How to improve your breathing technique by practicing when you aren't running
- Breathing exercises to improve your lung capacity (you can check out a great starting point here)
- Running workouts that will force adaptation in your lungs.
