When doing any challenging physical activity it is almost impossible to breathe through your nose, this is absolutely fine.

 

So when is it suitable to breathe in through your nose when running?

 

When, or if, you do a recovery run it is very important to breathe through your nose.

 

This can be very challenging and you will realise how slow you will have to go to able to do this.

 

When you breathe in through your nose your diaphragm is working efficiently and your heart rate is slower, this makes sure that you are actually aiding recovery!
