    Last evening, as usual, I started running with your latest episode playing. Shortly after, I realized this was the YouTubu that shocked me a month ago and got me started on MAF. The podcast version is great too. I could hear your footsteps throughout and naturally synchronized my cadence through the headset. Isn’t it wonderful that I, a beginner in running, can run 30 minutes with a sub-3 pace runner?

    I was able to listen to the tips you explained and try them out. The breathing method was good. It actually reduced my heart rate a bit. When my heart rate goes up, I will remember and try to control my breathing.

    The video was great, but it was also very good to be able to listen to the explanations and try them out on the spot. I look forward to future podcasts.
