Breathing and Running...Do YOU know what to do?

Here are my lessons on breathing:

***Just breathing through nose can cause hyperventilation, so breathing through both nose and mouth is better.
***Mouth should be open slightly and jaw completely rested. This is also called as "dead fish" position because that's what it looks like.
***Belly breathing is better than chest breathing since you are breathing in more Oxygen and exhaling more Carbon dioxide. I need to practice this.
***Don't try to achieve 2/2 or 2/1 or 3/1. Do what feels right, is comfortable to you, and go with the rhythm of your body.
