Corporal Darren Peacock – 10 days in with the POWERbreathe

Darren PeacockIt’s been 10 days since I arrived in Afghanistan and 9 days since I started using my POWERbreathe .

My workload is quite heavy durning the day, working 12 hour shifts but I find it easy to fit in 2 sessions of POWERbreathe training although I have received many an odd look for my work  colleagues.

As an Ex-smoker I used the smoke breaks my colleagues take to remind myself that I need to get 30 breaths with my  POWERbreathe Plus.

I found it very simple to use I watched the DVD with instructions on the flight here so was ready to go once I got here. My plan while I am here is to run a Marathon on the same day as the London Marathon, April 22nd.

I have managed to follow my running training so far but have had to switch to running on a treadmill as it is very dusty outside. My current running program is building me up for longer running, a few 3 mile runs, 7.5 and a nice 12.5 on a Sunday.

Although there is a gym here I have opted to continue with my TRX training as I have 24 hour access to it and along as I can attach it 8 foot about me I can get a 45 minute session. I was a bit sceptical at first about the benefits of PowerBreathing but I am very surprised with the results, I have noticed my breathing is easier while I am running even though its been only 9 days, I used to be really out of breath for the first 10 minutes of exercise until I got my second wind but now my breathing is more controlled as I start.

Tomorrow is time to turn my POWERbreathe Plus to setting number 1 and see the difference in resistance. I can’t wait to see and feel the results as I progress through the different settings.

Regards

Darren
