I took up running at 46 and, along with weightlifting and good nutrition, it got me to 50 in the best shape of my life! This article has great advice and anyone starting a running program will benefit from it.
I love to run and plan to continue doing it into my sixties, seventies and beyond... for as long as I can...
I rub 3-4 miles about 5 times a week(slacked off but recently started and am a 4 mile point is 50 mins happy faces!!) as for breathing I puff out 2 short breathes and c=suck in 2 short breathes the entire time, we check on the marathon runner site and this is how they breathe and it really works!!! I was able to run further longer cause I kept by breath! Have fun running!!

PEGGYLYNN2 I USE THE TREADMILL 3 TIMES A WEEK. PEGGY
At high intensity running requires large amounts of oxygen to replenish the body and allow the muscles to function well.So if inevitable u can breath from the mouth but try to inhale from the nose .U may exhale from the mouth which well help expel CO2 faster ..Tyr to practice breathing from the nose at slow speeds and make it a habit...Bye..
