Learning to Breathe

Learning to Breathe

After struggling at the weekend been taking some advise from some good friends. Many thanks Tribal.

So tonight was 3km in the lake followed by 50mins running the only focus was breathe in through the mouth and out through the nose.

Ok on the swim but shocked how hard it was at first on the run but it got easier and easier.

Will be keeping the focus on this for a while!

    Hi Mark
    Were you using that breathing technique on both the swim and the run?

    Hi Simon,

    We used last night’s run session as a recovery run and this was a great time to work on technique and breathing.

    For the run technique it’s great to work on lifting the legs from the hips and opening the gate at the slower cadence. You can then work on keeping the gate as you increase cadence, resulting in running faster.

    For breathing if you like me this time of year can be troublesome with hayfever, so if you run in to trouble breathing out through your nose then try exaggerating the out breathe through the mouth. This is much easier to experiment with on recovery runs.

    Definitely recommend practicing this on swim’s despite the efforts last night I was feeling more comfortable exhaling for longer during the stroke and allowing me to inhale more air once I needed to.
