Today was a 2 a day training regimen with hypoxic training. We ran this morning and this evening.
On our run this morning we did hypoxic training for 3 miles. Hypoxic training means that you hold your breath while running then you breathe while running and repeat.
For example I start by running 6 steps while breathing and making sure that on my 6th step I breathe in. Then I hold my breath for 6 steps. Then I increase to 8 steps and repeat going as high as I can. Once I hit the highest I can go I then work my way back down to 6.
This is a challenging exercise and helps you train for altitude.
Today's run stats:
Distance: 9.39 miles
Morning: 102 feet
Evening: 610 feet
Distance run in the last 7 days: 60.2 miles
