Hm. I hope you don't listen to this guy about the breathing stuff. While I agree we are not focused on the breath enough, nor do we use the full capacity of our lungs, I would not advise Belly breathing while running! It's more of a slow-down, relaxation type of breath. Imagine trying to push the belly out while running - you need to be engaging your core muscles during activity! I would recommend Chest breathing instead, with an attention on expanding the ribcage by lifting the ribs out to the sides to get the maximum oxygen uptake. See our website:
Of course, to each his/her own with breathing, as long as you're doing it that's what counts.
All the rest sounds good. I will alternate shoes and not give up on Hokas quite yet, and learn more about Running Form. That's a brand new concept for me and I have no idea what I'm doing there. Thanks for the advice!!
