breathing is good while running

So I headed out to run tonight.  I figured I might was well try to get used to the heat since tomorrow will be a killer one at run club.  As I was running up the hill that I dread I noticed that I was holding my breath.  The last time I ran that hill I noticed that I was holding my breath.  Now if you know me you know this is really really odd because I am the heavy, I'm a stalker, type of breather when I run.  I had always wondered how people could forget to breathe when the group instructors would say "Don't forget to breathe".  Well I guess it is official.  I forgot to breathe.

I too am that heavy, stalker type breather. I usually get a, "I hear you Michelle!"

I don't usually forget to breathe, but I do get an upset tummy if I breathe wrong. I know that sounds crazy, but I think it's heartburn related. I still haven't hit the streets in the heat, just running on the mill....
