Spent some time over the last few days researching running techniques whilst running, I have a tendency to hyperventilate and it makes my chest hurt when running. It's strange to think that you can breathe wrong! Today I tried a 3-in, 3-ou... Read more

Back to blogging: confessions

Wednesday, April 25, 2012      8 comments
