Hi all, hope you don't mind another question I started running 2 weeks ago, and I've been doing just under 3 miles every other day. I've started completely from scratch, so I am extremely unfit - I can only do 3-5 mins at a time before I have to stop for 5 minutes as I'm wheezing so much, my throat burns, I taste blood and I get wheezy like I have asthma - but I don't (that I know of!)
I know people will say that I should slow down, but I'm so slow already I don't think I can! And that you should go at a pace that allows you to hold a conversation - but again, unless I walked then it wouldn't happen!
Even when I was younger and fitter I still got out of breath easily and struggled to control my breathing - I don't think can ever have been properly fit.
Does anyone else get this problem? Any tips? Or do I just have to ride it out?
