    Sort of a noob question but is there anything special you need to do with your breathing when you start out running?

    Do you need to breath really deeply, or through your nose (or mouth) only, or shallow breathing, or quick or slow or whatever?

    Or should you just breath normally, even if you feel like you are panting like a dog on a hot summer day. :smile:

    When you start out just make sure you're running at a pace that means you could hold a conversation and providing you don't actually stop breathing you're all good...

    Once you're doing that for 30 mins / 5km 3 times a week then maybe throw in some faster stuff - once you do that there's a good argument for learning to breath from the diaphragm https://www.runnersworld.com/running-tips/running-on-air-breathing-technique .
