Breathing While Running

Is breathing via the mouth dangerous? And by not breathing via my nose, will I risk not getting any stamina?


Answer by Dominique:


Hi there,
Thanks for your running training question. By doing a search on Google you will find quite some evidence that breathing via the nose has many benefits over breathing via the mouth. However I think you need to make a distinction between what you do generally and what you do while running. It is inevitable that when you are running fast your mouth starts opening and you start breathing through the mouth, I think.





So, although I am not a breathing specialist, I would not get too worried if you are breathing through your mouth occassionally while running.

More about the benefits of breathing through your nose can be found on this page.
