i started running back in september and am now up to 3-4 mile runs 3x per week. starting about a month ago i started to feel pretty short of breath about a mile into my run. it's enough that i often feel like i have to stop and walk just to catch my breath. at first i figured it was because it was getting colder (i'm in NYC) and also because my lungs just needed to get into better shape. often i just try to "run through it", but it really doesn't get any better throughout and usually i am really gulping for air by the end of my run. then about two weeks ago i started to notice that after my run i was wheezing for about ten minutes. has anyone else had this experience? i'm thinking perhaps i have exercise-induced asthma (i should say that i had adolescent asthma that disappeared when i was about 12), but i don't want to blow this out of proportion of it's just something that will go away once i'm in better shape.
thanks for any advice!
