  • I just breathe through my nose. If I jog with my mouth open, my throat burns.

  • In the nose out the mouth is best but when you are dying like that just getting oxygen is important. Good job. I need a jog.

  • mostly a mouth breather when I'm running hard, but if I'm taking it easy, nose in, mouth out. Don't worry so much right now in the beginning, just get Oxygen in so you can keep going. Worry about "breathing right" later.

  • I breathe in and out through my nose unless I am straining really hard and then it is time to quit. and walk

  • I have been running for 20 years and I have always breathed through my mouth. Sometimes, when Im jogging I will breathe through my nose to help relax myself. If you havent been running for a while and start again, you will breathe hard, and you will get tired . However, that is normal for getting back into it.

  • If you are struggling to the point that you won't keep up with it, slow it down. Get the Couch to 5K app and ease into running by following that program. That's how I started running and now I'm going 10miles no problem!

  • I breathe through my nose and mouth. If I just use my nose, I can't get enough air.
    C25K is a great program! Keep it up mama!! =)
