Breathing – we’ve all been doing it wrong!

As coach to my running club I carry out coaching sessions and provide advice. After being asked more than once “How do you breathe?” the response “What do you mean? You’ve been doing it from birth!”

This response wasn’t quite enough so I researched and found this chapter which even I found useful (and I thought my breathing was pretty good).

It’s a bit wordy and running focused but it is worth reading and seeing if you can adapt some of your training to increase the use of your alveoli for when you need to go all out. If you cannot manage all the words head towards the bottom of page 6.
