I have signed up to do the warrior dash this summer, I have never been a runner but I always wanted to try so I figure this is the perfect opportunity. The problem is I cant figure out how to breathe while I run. Right now I am running in intervals, I live out in the county so I run on county dirt roads and I run by telephone poles. I walk 2 poles, run 3 poles, walk 2, run 3 for the whole run which is usually about half an hour and I go just over 2 miles - so I am pretty much doing 14-15 min miles. That's not good enough, I feel like I could go farther (meaning say 4 or 5 poles instead of just 3) if I could just breathe! So I guess my question is how do I breathe while running? I read somewhere that you just "find" your rhythm but I have been running for 2 weeks now (not very long I know) and I just feel like im going nowhere or even backwards because I cant breathe. Any help or advice is much appreciated!
