    I am new to the forum but not new to running, I am starting a run group at work in April, I've been running for 16 yrs. I remember starting out and having issues with the "breathing" technique, I'm here to say stop focusing on your breathing and focus on your running technique, I breathe through my mouth when I run, I keep my shoulders back and arms swinging at waist, doing this keeps lungs open, lots start out with arms high up and slouched over this binds your lungs and it feels like your struggling to breathe, relax and just breathe. Hope this helps

    To get better breathing you should inhale twice and exhale once.!

    So. Today. I'm in Week 5, Day 1. Super Cold out (40 degrees), high altitude. Which I am used to. 2nd running session and my right side was killing me. It's from lack of oxygen. I was so stiff running today because of the cold. Major stitch in the Side. Started walking and breathing deep. Not through your mouth. Through your diaphragm. Hold your tummy and breathe through your chest with your mouth closed.
    Do this a few times a day too and this will help. I set a timer for 3 x a day and breathe deep for a few minutes. At first you will get dizzy but it will subside. Do you you realize how much we don't breathe DEEP????? It will increase your metabolism too. Breathe in , out. Breathe in 3 times, let it out the same way. 3 times in, blow out. keep doing it. Also breathe in, hold, hold, hold, let out. Look up Oxycise. It works. We never use our lungs to capacity.
    Are you sitting here ? Are you breathing?, not deep enough EH??? Now breathe deep. It oxygenates the blood. Which increased circulation, which increases metabolism. Try it.
