Allow for a much longer warm-up, not only for your breathing but your muscles, too! In due time, you will adjust to the colder temps when running and always dress as though it is 20 degrees warmer than the outside air temperature. Best of luck!
In through your nose and out through your mouth. Too many people breath straight through their mouths this can irritate your lungs but the other way decreases inflammation of the bronchioles. Also, layer your clothing you don't want to be too warm either.

Happy Sunday everyone. I have a question for those of you that live in colder regions. It's been in the high 30s to low 40s here in San Diego County this week when I run. It is really hard to breathe! I guess this is something I will get used to, but is there anyway to help overcome it faster?
