I sometimes use steps per breath in exactly that way, Steve (though I'm a bit of a tech geek tbf).

I do use nose breathing to keep myself down to a solidly easy pace, but for anything harder it's drop jaw and drool (if the race photos are anything to go by).

Someone once told me that I wouldn't be able to run because I can't breathe through my nose for long even when sitting still. She wasn't a runner or a Dr herself, but her Dad was a GP who apparently knew everything. I ignored her advice!

I do sometimes have a practice at sitting still and breathing through my nose. Maybe If I learn to do it I'll be a better runner?

Got something to say?
