The one reason I do not enjoy running is because of breathing. I constantly have to tell me self keep going keep going and mussle my way through the run because I always feel out of breath.
Does anyone have any tips on how to maintain steady breathing without having your chest burn.
Currently I am running 2.5 miles at 6 on treadmill. Takes me right about 25 minutes.
Try yo create you own breathing pattern, it's just like a rhythm. I had a problem with the side pain in the left gut, what worked for me was when my left foot touched the ground I exhaled! works like a charm!
Anyway don't give up on running!
You should modify you breathing pattern to your running pace. and If feel like you can't keep up, just lower you running pace. I know that you want to see results right away but it takes a bit but it worth it!
Ruby, I sure its not hyperventilating, I always hear, after the first mile its easier. I have worked up to 2.5 from half a mile and it still the same lol. I do it because I know its good for me not because I enjoy it.
