Run with your mouth open slightly and let your body do the breathing. I used to think controlling the breathing helped or breath in the nose and out of the mouth and that never worked.

Since I discovered the slightly open mouth technique, breathing has been easier. Also monitor your pace. If you are running too fast that you can't carry a conversation (or in my case talk to myself emoticon ) then you are going too fast. If you can sing then you are not going fast enough.

Two of my asthma triggers are cold air and pollen, so in Winter and Spring I run with a scarf that I can breath through. I also found breathing while running easier after I started practising yoga more seriously.

hi kittykatvegan,
I too have asthma although I had smoked as well I quit last January since then I have been able to take myself off my meds and have had significant improvement although i still struggle with running etc it has been a slow process building strength in my lungs etc anyway I would discuss your breathing with your asthma doctor to see if there are ways to improve that but kudo's on your program that to me is a huge achievement good luck

Hey guys!

I've just finished the C25K program on Friday. I have asthma, and sometimes find it hard to catch my breath while running. I am taking asthma medications, but does anyone have any other tips when it comes to running with asthma/breathing easier when exercising? emoticon
