Am currently reading a book on breathing right now...Breathing for Warriors....and it states more or less that running is a way to learn a proper breathing pattern while using the diaphragm and pelvic floor.
Being the creative and naive idiot that I am, after 4 years of no running at all, did a 5km run yesterday, 60 sec of running, followed by 120 sec of walking. Was really fun, never would have thought that riding bikes and lifting stuff would keep me that fresh.
Today though....can hardly walk, my calves are killing me. Long-term goal....turning 50 in three years, and running the half marathon in Are, Sweden, has always been part of my life goals, guess I am back on track of prepping for that one. So....one day I hope I run that one. Was registered four years ago, but that summer did not go as planned.
