Anyone got Tips or Exercises to develop it? I’ve not mastered the breathing at all. Around week two Sarah mentioned trying to control it. But also said if it’s too hard to not worry because you can master it later.
I think it might be later...
So far I have let my body guide me with it and just let my breathing happen ‘naturally’. Early days whenever I’d tried to calm it or make the ins and outs longer or deeper I end up feeling like I’m not breathing enough and find myself in a panicky set of short ins and outs.
I’d not been thinking about the breathing thing for a long time as I was doing fine. But yesterday I did w7r1 and even though it was the same as w6r3 and I didn’t change anything. (Stayed at the comfortable pace I seem to have found.) the last 4 mins ish I struggled. Not enough to stop. My legs were fine. But I really felt like it was really hard work to breath. I concentrated on keeping my breathing the same, to avoid panicking and managed to get through it. Telling myself I didn’t have long left and ‘I can do this’.
In the last 20 ish seconds I managed a tiny boost to my pace. And it felt great to complete. But it did take some effort to take back control of my breathing through the closing Brisk walk. 🥵
Is this normal? Any advice?
I could do with some help on the breathing I think. 🤷♀️
