I don't know if this is getting too you to late, but one trick I've learned is to breathe more shallowly (if side aches are a problem). I've never been a long-disntance running fan, myself, but wanting to press my cardio routines forward, I decided to push myself with running. The more relaxed you are, the easier it is. Try running to music where you can put your feet down in a comfortable pace (this helps me). And if you can, push yourself in blocks (you can't go frum 1 mile to 8 in a short span of time easily.)
Best of luck to you in the academy!
: i am a new runner training for the police academy. I have always been able to run sprints and short distances. This is the first time training for longer runs ie. 3-8 miles. This may not seem long to some of you but i hate running anything over 1 mile. is there any special breathing or running techniques i can use. Thanks.
