On two thirds of my runs, I don't even think about breathing. It comes naturally and I'm golden. On the other third, it's a different story. Sometimes I start consciously thinking about my breathing pattern and then I can't find a good rhythm again for the rest of the run. I think my heart rate suffers because of this. Sometimes just runny nose throws me off.
I wanted to hear what tips y'all had for breathing while running. What rhythm do y'all use to synchronize with your stride, if you even do that? Nose breather or mouth breather or combination? I'm all ears.
