W7D1 - did 2 miles. Had to push & motivate myself but I made it. My legs got a little fatigued but no pain. I'm still struggling with the feeling of not having enough breath, even though I'm doing a 2in/3 out count. But it felt good. Wed, I'm gonna push for 2.25miles!

    Hey, Kari. Try to breath deeply. Expand your diaphragm and fill the lower part of your lungs, then release it and it will naturally collapse and force some air out. Then contract your abs a bit to force this area to exhale more. Practice that when you're not running. Then, when running, focus on breathing into your lower lungs to get the most oxygen exchange. You may take longer breaths (3-4 count), but you may not breathe as hard. Shallow breaths don't do as much for us as deeper ones. :)
