How to Achieve Distance Running Meditation
There was an episode of Radiolab recently where they interviewed an ultra-marathon runner who talked about the rhythm of your stride and your breath. She described it as “poetry,” and I think that’s just about right.
To get to that sweet spot, the key is to shut everything out of your head and focus on your breath coming in and out and your feet as they hit the pavement. What the ultra runner talked about, and what’s worked for me and my partner, is a double inhale and exhale, paired with two strides. It works like this:
As your foot hits the ground, you take a short breath in.
The next time your foot makes contact with the pavement, take another short breath.
Take another step and breathe out.
Take one more step and breathe out again.
Keep this rhythm going, breathing in and out and focusing on your stride and let other thoughts fall away.
You don’t want to count your steps or your breaths. Just breathe. In, in. Out, out. Step, step. Step, step. Before you know it, your mind will be quieter, and you’ll have found your rhythm.
The  Daily Heal

i’m excited to try this… because quite frankly, i struggle to breathe and run at the same time.

Maybe I’ll try this, since sometimes I have a difficult time figuring out how to breathe efficiently when I run. I only do it well when I’m completely lost in thought….huh, makes sense.

4 Days Till Soldier Field 10 Mile:
A little tiny bit of panic is setting in. Random thoughts running through my head… I should have trained better (I should have), what will the weather be like (hope its not hot), and I wish I hadn’t gain those couple of pounds since last years race.
