The single most common beginner runner complaint I hear from beginner runners is that they can’t breathe. Often new runners say they struggle to breathe because they feel like they’re breathing through a straw; they say they just can’t get enough air.
If you’ve ever been in that situation, you will find answers in this episode. That may be the number 1 problem that you know you must overcome to be a successs, to be able to build endurance and run for miles. It just makes sense, that if you can’t breathe, you can’t run very far and you can’t be comfortable for even a few minutes. So, this is a problem we must fix and do it now.
