rythmic breathing anyone?

Post  ravdeep on Wed Mar 22, 2017 1:51 am

I've been working on learning this technique for about a month now. its somewhat challenging, requires constant focus. I feel like i am almost there. I find myself running with my cadence and breathing in sync with each other more and more. And its amazing really. I am able to run faster and longer with less effort. but every now and again i fall out of rythm, and it takes a while to get back into it again. I just wanted to know, if these short spans of uncoordinated running where im out of rythm can cause injury?

No I don't believe so.  I don't use rhythmic breathing techniques per se, although we all do to an extent.  I have a friend who trains only by effort and counting breaths and it does work - so you are on the right track.  It will soon become common place and you will not have to think so much.

I base my effort on inhale:exhale ratios counting on my left foot... 1:20 is easy, 1:15 is marathon pace, 1:12 is tempo, 1:10 is 10k, etc.

I'm sure if you plugged my nose I'd realize I'm taking small inhales but this is for full breaths.  I'm probably alone in this, though.

I don't get it...

Count on left footstrike.  Breathe in for 1 cycle, out for 20 = easy.  In for 1, out for 15 = marathon effort.  Etc.  Smile
