A word from your coach:

Being able to train with nasal breathing only is an important part of training for a well rounded athlete. If you are always exercising at your maximal intensity taking big breaths through your mouth then you are always training in a maximal state in a sympathetic nervous state. This is good if maximal intensity is your focus. But if you are trying to work on your aerobic system or trying to not over stress your nervous system, try training by breathing only through your nose. This is more difficult than it sounds, but it will keep your nervous system in a more parasympathetic state. This is especially good if you are burned out from daily stress but still want to train. This will keep your intensity to a level that will not push your stress levels further.
