Getting back in to it.

I didn't run for a few weeks in the summer due to a cold and a cough. Now I'm getting m running going again, but I find that after about 15 minutes I get a gagging feeling in my throat and have to walk for about a minute.

Any ideas?


  • Sports induced asthma? Can be triggered by the cold damp weather.
  • Or Exercise induced asthma. Caused by the cold air entering your body that hasn't been warmed by the nasal passage due to entering through your mouth. The symptoms should ease as you get fitter.
  • You can get something called an exercise induced bronchospasm. It tends to be associated with asthma, but not exclusively. That could cause the gagging sensation.

  • Thank you. image
