2.I tell you this anticdote not brag about my sister, but because I realize everyone runs differently and as I get back into it post injury, I've been struggling. I don't ever strive to run 26.2 miles straight or even 13.1 for that matter. I will share that in the past I have ran 10 miles without stopping and to tell you the truth it wasn't even a struggle and it was at a good pace too! But I digress. Let's get back to NOW!
3. During the time I was not running I thought I was keeping my cardio up by riding the exercise bike. Little did I know that was not enough! I am catching myself taking more walk breaks during my running and even during a bike ride the other day out on the road I was struggling.

4. When running I was trying to remember the breathing pattern that I learned from Budd Coates when I attended his seminar at the Runner's World blogger event. It was something about breathing in and breathing out during different foot strikes. How can something so simple as learning how to breath end up being so complicated for me? ..lol. I spend my time concentrating on when to breath and when to step that I don't enjoy the run. I tell ya people, this injury has really messed me up and I feel like I am learning to run all over again! It is quite the process.
5. So tell me, what is your best breathing tip? What do you do to help with cardio? -M
