Dead Fish Breathing Pattern
Hello Sir,
I'm looking for resources on 'Dead Fish Breathing Pattern'. Google and other running sites do not spawn any results for the same. Do let me know if you are aware of any sites/pdfs/books...
Thank you in advance

Hi Shyam,
Dead fish breathing, is basically breathing through your mouth. You have to let your jaw drop open so that your lips are slightly parted. I don't have any books or pdfs related to it, but I have found a number of blog posts. http://swangerk.wordpress.com/training-tips/how-to-control-breathing-while-running/

Hi Avi,
You have 5 and a half months, enough time to prepare and run a good 21km. I have put up a training program on the procam site, look it up, it will help. Try to join a running group in your area, If you stay in south Mumbai, you can join my running group.

What type of shorts to wear while running?
I have been practicing for 10k. Currently I am running 5kms on treadmill regularly.
Now, I wear loose shorts while running. After running, I realized that the skin that touches scrotum has been bruised because of long running.
How can I avoid further pains?

Hi Sourabh,
Use Vaseline or petroleum jelly, on the inside of your thigh before you run. Or, try wearing cycling shorts under your running shorts.

hi
you have not mentioned your name. continue doing the exercises. and keep and icing your knee atleast 4-5 times a day. keep fit by cycling and swimming. on the race day take a painkiller (anti-inflamation tablet [ask the doctor]) and eat before you take the tablet.

Pain in the ball of the foot
Hello Doctor,

I'm 42 years old male candidate and running first time in the marathon. Since last 3 months I started to feel pain (occasionally) in the ball of the foot. I always walk 100 minutes (to and fro) a day. I don't know why this pain has started suddenly. I've habit to walk a lot per day so that won't be the reason.

I started running since last 2 months. Doctor suggested me to use vulgus pad (what kind of vulgus pad I should go for) in the shoes. Please advice.

Thanks

Regards

Half Marathon to Full marathon ?
Hello Coach, I recently finished my ADHM with 3.15 hrs. it was my fourth half marathon. Unfortunately I was not able to enrol for SCMM 2013 half marathon. It seems the Full marathon category is open. I am kind of interested to take part in full marathon but it looks too difficult at this point of time from preparation perspective as only 85 odd days are left. Do you think I should go for it ? Also Will I be eligible for full marathon (I mean i don't have any timing certificate for full marathon) ? If you think I can, then please provide me some tips as well. looking positively for your reply.

Hi Coach, I did it in around 06:35 hours. It was a memorable moment for me. No matter how late I was, but atleast now I don't have a fear of that distance and will definitely be more prepared next time. Thanks.

Hi Coach, I've actively participated in ADHM 2010, 2011 and SCMM 2011. Now I'm preparing for ADHM 2012 which is scheduled on 30th September 2012. Off lately, I'm feeling pain on my heels. I am 5'10" and weighing 86 Kgs. I wear ASICS Gel Kayano shoes and i have normal pronation. Let me know what can be the possible causes of the heel pain and how can it be cured ?

Thanks a lot Coach... Your very first point seems to be the main cause. Usually I used to jog on roads but off lately i shifted my training to Gym on trademill. After that only i started feeling pain. Once this ADHM is over, i'll take some rest and follow your lead to get relief. Later on will try again slowly on roads.

Thanks a lot once again....
