Training on the Train

I needed to go to Kent for work yesterday and on the way home I decided to try a few breath holds.The train between Ashford and Victoria was pretty quiet and after a good breath up trying to remain as relaxed a possible, I managed to hold my breath between Lenham and Harrietsham and then East Malling and West Malling, the latter a distance of 2 miles. I didn’t time the holds but they felt like a good while. My recovery breathing drew a few strange glances my way, but nobody came running to see if I was ok, worryingly.

I find myself practising now whenever I can, trying to understand what my body needs to relax and my changing tolerance to CO2 build up.
