On a delightful day of blue sky and warm sunshine, the Woodinville Falcons headed to Marymoor Park to run against Issaquah and Eastlake on Oct. 8.

Woodinville Coach Sandy Laurence and her assistants spent five and half hours preparing the 5,000-meter course, and were raring to go when the starter’s pistol went off at 4:35 p.m.

Do you really know how to breathe?

  • Written by By Jimmy McCurry, CSCS Progressive Performance, LLC

Every day each person takes about 20,000 breaths. That is 20,000 repetitions of muscle contraction. Count up how many crunches, squats and lunges you have done, every rep making them as perfect as possible. Now think about breathing. Is that something you ever really think about? Unless you are suffocating, or have a cold, probably not. Have you ever thought you could be performing 20,000 reps a day wrong? Well, we all do it, but there are some ways to help.
Improper or inefficient breathing patterns can cause postural dysfunctions and lack of stability in the trunk, as well as lack of mobility in the limbs. If you can keep a more stable trunk you will exhibit more range of motion in the shoulders and hips.There are muscles that are responsible for controlling breathing. The muscles that are most involved in respiration are the diaphragm, abdominals and external intercostals; we will talk about the diaphragm.
