um I'm a newbi at the running thing. Have tried it before and always had the same issue that nancylmm is having "I notice that I am breathing too fast almost to hyperventilate how do I stop that??". Currently I can't go more then a block and 1/2 before I can't breath, I can walk hours at a time, but its the breathing that's consistently scarring me from running. Any advice on regulating breathing?
btw, I don't have asthma (anymore), and my lungs are good. Is it just a matter of pushing through the (extreme)discomfort? or will I pass out?
