Breathing While Running

How do I breathe when I am running?


Answer by Dominique:


Simple. First breathe in, then breathe out... :)
There are no hard and fast rules around breathing when running, as long as you do it!
If you currently do not have any issues with breathing, then do not pay attention to it.





If you do have problems, you are most likely breathing too fast. Allow your lungs to fill with air and breathe out long and slow. Something like two counts to breath in air, four counts to breath it out.

Breathing While Running
by: Bob

Slow,controlled breathing is good advice Dominique.
Also, try breathing in through your nose and out of your mouth. The restriction of the airways through the nose provides a faster, more powerful delivery of oxygen to your lungs and the larger airway breathing out allows for quicker exhaling. Think of a garden hose with a small diameter sprayer going in and the sprayer off going out. Good luck.

Also, hold shoulders back which opens the lung cavity making it easier to breath (the lungs don't have to "push" the cavity open if it already is). Hope this helps.
