I just read a great new post by the No-Meat Athlete, Matt Frazier. Check it out!
Inspiration from Scott Jurek, John Douillard, & Thich Nhat Hanh. Breathe through the nose- not mouth- when you run. Breathe at a slower pace. This decreases heart rate, makes the body more relaxed – no fight-or-flight stress response like breathing through the mouth creates- so you can run in the zen-like “zone,” and actually will increase performance.
Gonna try it! What do you think? Sounds a lot like YOGA, friends.
