I'm Elmore McConnell. Today, we're going to be talking about breathing exercises for runners. The best benefit about this is to make sure that you're properly breathing in order to keep you from over-consuming oxygen or going into oxygen dep too soon. Some of the dos and don'ts of breathing during running, number one would be make sure that you take your time and just breathe. You don't want to just run and breathe like this. You want to take your time, breathe in through the mouth, blow out through the mouth. Some runners make the common mistake of only trying to breathe in through their nose, which, we only have two nostrils, which are smaller than our passage of air through our mouth. We're not able to get enough oxygen to get to the muscles to help us to be efficient runners. Now, when you're running in a winter time, it's a different way of breathing that you want to do. You want to take your tongue and put it at the top of your mouth. This is going to help to heat the air before you pull it in. What happens is, is the air in the winter is thin, but in the summer it's a lot thicker, so what you're trying to do is warm the air with your tongue in order to make it a little bit thicker so you can be able to consumer the oxygen. So, here's a example of how to breathe and run at the same time. Jogging in place. There's a few different ways you could do it -- you could go in through the nose, and then out through the mouth. Once you begin to get more labored, you can go in and out through the mouth. Notice how I breathe out easily and softly. You want to stick away from forcing the air out. Now, you try!
