Kate's Pledge- March

Postby kate_turner2000 » Sun Mar 11, 2007 9:14 pm

ok this past week i thought that i would try running because i havent done that since high school. i aimed to go three times and i did. *pat on back* sorta like a practice run for this week. my pledge for this month is:

1. 3x runs

2. squats, push ups and sit ups every day
(even if i dont do many at least it is something!)

3. 4x exercise bike for 30 minute sessions. (this will happen the days i dont go for runs)


i will keep track in the daily exercise diary and will also report back here. feeling fit and terrific!

Great plan Kate :!: I am sure that you will feel far fitter because of it.

Excellent plan, Kate.

I think running is the best way to improve your cardio fitness. I'm feeling pretty fit at the moment (as in not getting out of breath when I run) but it's my damn legs that give out on me before my lungs do. Oh well, a bit more training...

I don't know if this will help or not (and for the record, I tend to breathe in and out my mouth, too) but for the longest time, I used to count four breaths in and about 4 out while I was running. I was always out of breath and huffing and puffing, even when I was slim and in the low 50s and carrying around an extra 18 or so kilos.

Recently, I became less conscious of my breathing. I stopped counting and I found my natural rythmn which is about 3 counts in and 2 out and I no longer get out of breath (unless of course i pick up the pace significantly or hit a big hill) and as I said above, my legs give out before my lungs do. Can't believe it took me so long to work this out!

I don't know exactly what my point is, but maybe experiment with different counts :?: But I'm sure you'll find your natural rythmn anyway as you continue to train and pick up distance and improve your times.

I've always wanted to be a runner -- it really appeals to me -- time to pound out any agression, have your thoughts all to yourself, see yourself rapidly improve -- but I've realised now that I'll never be very good at it, no matter how many copies of 'Runners World' I buy :lol:

Great pledge Kate. Enjoy the running :D I always breathe thru my mouth too! Don't think it matters too much. I find it really helpful to not think about it at all... as soon as I think about my breathing I start puffing and getting a stitch :( Just think about something else, like what you are going to do when you get back home lol :wink:

Well done Kate a great pledge.

I too breathe in and out of mouth during running and walking. When doing weights/resistance training I tend to breathe out through my mouth and in through my nose, it's just something I've gotten used to doing plus it adds to the concentration.
