Loud breathing!

So I started the C25K using the app and pacing myself to music - Fab! But obviously I wasn't able to hear myself breath whilst running. I have started going out with a group of girls and we enjoy a good old jog/walk session but without the music blasting in my ears I've noticed I actually breath really loudly!!! To the point where I get really embarrassed. Does anyone else find that they breath really loudly? When I run past other people I don't hear them breathing like it!???

I breath really loudly! Can sometimes hear it over the music 😂

Wait until you're breathing really heavily and Robert Plant is doing one of his "Oooh baby" things on one of your favourite LedZep tracks. That's a slightly uncomfortable moment to cherish :-)

There's a Donna Summer in all of us somewhere....

We pretty much all breathe loudly. And remember your ears are right next to where the air wooshes in and out, so we get the effect amplified.

Listen to your running friends - what you can hear of them is what they can hear of you.

I go beetroot red too! I run along the seafront and then afterwards drive home with all the windows open and fan on cold directed right at my face!! 😂

Ha ha me too! I actually surprised myself when the music stopped 😂
