Improve Your Breathing, Try a Neti Pot, My How To Video
Unless you have a known medical condition, your breathing hurts or always seems to be labored when exercising, (this is when you need to consult a doctor) let’s use the KISS principle when it comes to breathing, don’t think about it too much, remember to exhale fully and breathe. It takes time to build up an aerobic base and your lactate threshold when breathing during exercise. Eventually it becomes easier.
If you are working on improving your breathing start by keeping your runs at a lower intensity so you don’t have to breathe as hard and give your self time to build up your ventilation threshold.
This video shows me using one of my neti pots for nasal rinsing, which cleans and keeps my sinuses clear for deeper breaths. Something you may want to try. It takes a while to learn how to do it and can even sting in the beginning, yet it has been worth it for me.
