Just Breathe

One would think that running would be natural. That your feet would strike the pavement mid-foot and roll forward, that your breathing would be controlled and from the belly, and that your arms would know exactly where to be. However, as a new runner, I’ve found that isn’t the case. Most of us have to train our bodies to be efficient while running.

One of the most important components is breathing efficiently. I try to focus on my breaths while running, but realize that I have a lot to learn. I’ve been doing some research and found this great article on tips for breathing while running. It gives concise information about the importance of proper breathing technique as well as some exercises to try to increase your lung capacity.

I definitely found this article blog worthy. Looks like I’ll be going to pilates now too! 🙂

Do you have any tips related to breathing efficiently? I’d love to hear them!
