breathing practice was a success

23 Aug

breathing technique was indeed very useful in making good run!

first of all for me it is the nose breathing that works instead of mouth breathing because i suspect i m having some sort of gastric regurgitation problem causing me to have waterbrash and heartburn when i m running, those acid usually succeed in killing my running spirit, but not anymore with my nose breathing technique!

secondly usage of rhythm really helps me to keep focus when my mind wonders in midst of the long lonely run, and certainly hills needs more oxygen to relieve the lactic acid accumulations, this i believe can be done by having a deep breathing

thirdly abdomen breathing proved to be very hard to put in work. i failed miserable! i don’t even know how it works?? use the abdomen while running??#%@$

and finally my running time improved tremendously and i m a happy runner!

mouth breathing might work for divers, but not for me who suffers from regurgitation!

 For me, I’m focused on what I want to do. I know what I need to do to be a champion, so I’m working on it.

preparing for a marathon

22 Aug

as what the web will say, you need to prepare for your run months earlier

but with only 1 month plus i have very little time to do it and i need get going fast

lets hope it does not rain

today’s mission will be getting the breathing technique right! 

when your mind wonders into whole load of stuffs, focus on breathing and it will get you into running again

as what i have always experienced when you are not focus it is equivalent of not doing it at all be it your homework or even your weight loss program. 

a few techinuques

  1. mouth breathing rather than nose breathing
  2. abdomen breathing rather than chest breathing
  3. short and shallow breathing rather than deep breathing, one or 2 deep breathing will be fine to reorganize your breathing
  4. get a rhythm, based on some quick run on journals, you have to tailor your breathing based on your ability, altitude, hills and condition
  5. the key is if you are panting your are too fast, slow down

p/s i m not a pro, but we all are allowed to experiment this uncharted sea of running!


I set myself some specific goals, but the key one is just getting myself into as good a shape as possible for one day this year: the Olympic marathon.

i will never give up getting into the right shape!

I always loved running…it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.”
Jesse Owens

well said mr jesse owens!

“The marathon is a charismatic event. It has everything. It has drama. It has competition. It has camaraderie. It has heroism. Every jogger can’t dream of being an Olympic champion, but he can dream of finishing a marathon.”~Fred lebow, New York city marathon co-founder
