Running Tips in P.E? - September 26th 2009, 12:44 AM

Hello, does anyone have any running tips? My P.E. class is crazy and we always have to run. I am always last when I run and after like 2 laps I am already trying to catch my breath. I try running at a normal pace but after some time I breathe like crazy. Any tips?

I'm not sure if your school allows this, but while running my school allows ipods. I love listening to my ipod while I run because it help me find a good pace and helps take my mind off things so I'm not just focused on my breathing.

Don't worry or compare yourself to others. Time yourself and try to improve your personal time. Remember, PE is about making yourself healthy.

What I find that helps is if you breath in through your nose, and out through your mouth it makes it so you don't get as tired so fast.

Breathe through your nose, run a few miles outside of school (for the exercise as well!), and maybe get checked for asthma?

Hey Alvin

When you come in last and are having to catch your breath after not much time. I'd definitely suggest trying to run out of school in addition to in school. If you have a dog you could go running with them. You could also just try going for a jog when you get back from school or something. If you're only running like once or twice a week in PE, you won't see much improvement and may continue being last, though seriously there's nothing wrong with being last. If you're having trouble with breathing, where you maybe feel like your throat is closing, your chest is tight, you're wheezing, or dry coughing a lot then I'd suggest you go in and get tested for asthma, more specifically exercise-induced asthma. Exercise-induced asthma is where your asthma is only triggered when you're doing physical activities. I'd always been a decent runner with decent stamina, and then I started having breathing issues, which I thought nothing of until my throat closed up in the middle of a soccer game. Not the best experience. If you go in to get tested and don't have asthma, it could partially be related to allergies as well. If you or someone in your family have ever had issues with allergies, I'd suggest taking some sort of allergy medicine every day and see if it helps. Otherwise mostly you just have to keep running, because there's not really any way to make your stamina go up a bunch in a day or two.

"Love me for me, accept the fact I'm true, live like I want, fufill my dreams,
Dream of me, run out free, capture your words and never let them go."

I'll see you on the other side.
