Hi there, new to the forum and just looking for some advice.
I've only been running for a few weeks. I usually run twice and week and do aerobic exercise of some kind twice a week too. When I first went for a run, I have to admit it was the first time I'd genuinely ran out of choice - was often of the belief one should never run unless being chased! However I have really got determined to get good at it and have been enjoying it. I can run 2 miles in about 20 minutes now but last week or so I seem to have terrible problems with breathing, which I have seen has been discussed in another thread here. I get this feeling that I can't get a deep breath and that sets me off feeling all panicky and I haven't been able to run more than a mile without stopping. Is this a question of general rubbish fitness levels, or is there some kind of technique that I'm just ignorant of.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as I feel quite demoralised at the fact I appear to have got worse rather than better!
Thanks in advance.
