    How to breathe while running and how to strengthen breathing muscles. Very informative! From Robin - I tried this today on my run and I swear I had the most amazing run I've had in a long time. I don't know if it was because I was so focused on my breathing I didn't have time to think about anything else but I'm going to keep working on this breathing technique!!

    Walk for 3 minutes at 4.0; run at 7.0 for 90 seconds; then sprint at 9.5 for 30 seconds -- repeat until you have completed 30 minutes (should be close to 4 miles!) -- then jog for 3 minutes to cool-down.

    I hate shin splints!!!! I get them so easily and they are so painful!!
