Are you a new runner, or someone who’s tried running before, and you feel like your heart’s going to beat out of your chest and you can’t breathe while you’re on your run? Have you maybe given up because you thought something must be terribly wrong? This week’s episode of The Not Your Average Runner Podcast is for you, my friend!
Join me today as I share why you might be experiencing physical reactions different than what you’re used to as you begin running. I know that it can be scary if you don’t understand what causes these changes, so I’m here to shed some light on how you can work at your current fitness level to learn the right pacing and breathing techniques to help you achieve your best run.
You’ll also hear about my current obsession (so freaking awesome – tune in for this gem!) and the answer to my first Ask the Curvy Coach question: “What is the best running shoe to buy?”
