Adverbs describe verbs, adjetives and another adverb, so there are two adverbs, "too" and "foolish" "too" modifies the word "foolish" and "foolish" modifies breath and speak. By the way, I think you meant breathe instead of breath.

Because "foolish" in the sentence is describing the way of breathing and speaking... Breathe and speak are verbs and "foolish" is decribing those verbs, remember that adverbs describe verbs so that's how I know
