Cross Country

Hey everybody, so I am starting Cross Country for the first time and I was wondering if you guys could give me any tips My main problem is breathing. I get to a point where it feels as though their is a wall in my throat so it gets kinda hard to breath. If you have any advice please feel free to post, I can use all the help that I can get

i ran cross country for like 4 years only tips i have are don't quit because some workouts you think aren't possible but t hey are, your coach wouldn't give you the workout if it was impossible, also really use your arms with good form hard to explain but if you don't pump t hem correctly your wasting energy and if you correctly use your arms you save energy, also have good leg strides not short not too long and dont drag your knees keep them at a good height

upper body workouts are key.

if you pump your arms with strength and correctly it will help you immensely

life IS good.

Lol, thanks for the help guys! Any breathing tips? My friend was telling me to try "in,in,out" I tried it, but it felt really awkward...
