So, you just need to learn how to breathe correctly. After all, the quality of your workout depends not only on the proper position of the body and a healthy diet, but also on the correct breathing during running. There are a lot of techniques of breathing today. However, they all boil down to the fact that breathing during running should be natural, easy and free.
Breathing should be deep. Breathe in with all your might, do not leave air in the lungs, in a moment you will refill them with oxygen. In addition, it will ensure good ventilation of the lungs. Try to breathe in so that the air passes through the whole body.

How can you learn this breathing technique? Remember that everything takes time and effort. You can start training when you walk, and even in a quiet state. First you need to take a deep breath and to inflate your stomach.
The next main question of many runners is how to breathe: through the nose or the mouth? Many of us have been taught from the childhood to breathe through the nose, in order to clear the air of dust and microorganisms and to prevent the cooling of the respiratory tract.
For sure, you have repeatedly been convinced that if you breathe only through your nose, then soon you will feel an acute shortage of oxygen and just get out of your strength. The thing is that when running our body's need for oxygen increases sharply, and your task is to constantly saturate your lungs with air.
You can achieve this, if you breathe at the same time with your nose and mouth. In order not to overcool the airways in winter, touch the palate with the tongue and keep it that way when you breathe through the mouth. This little trick will allow the cold air to warm up a little in the mouth before it enters the larynx, and you will avoid colds.
