Breathing and Running

One of my clients recently brought up this subject and I though it would be a good idea to write about it, specially now that the competitive season is getting close.
We can easily not pay attention to our breathing technique, just because it happens naturally, we don't make an effort to breathe unless we start putting our bodies through exercise, raising our heart rates, only then we notice that we might be out of breath.
For swimmers, it's a do or drown thing, we are out of our natural environment when we have our faces in the water, so when practicing the freestyle, butterfly or breath stroke, we have to get our heads out and pull in the air in through our mouths.
