    Man, I dunno, I think I'm just outta the routine -- At less than the half mile mark I'm seriously loosing my wind. Almost to the point of hyperventilating. I've still got strength in my legs and I've gotten past my shin splints but the moment I step it up from a job to a run, my lungs go.

    I can get a mile not problem if I job, but I loose my wind everytime I sprint. I can't even try to control my breathing -- I almost lost my breakfast this morning.


    Anyone have some helpful hints?

    Distance running can be very hard to learn. If you want to be able to run one mile fast, you really have to be able to run 3 miles pretty easily. Learn to pace yourself. You will almost never want to be at full speed. It's just ineffective.

    And Sprinting is anaerobic. If you are working at your top end speed-wise you will not get a cardio workout.

    time after time..it all comes down to breathing...just breathing
    make sure to expell completely...empty your lungs...and that way you inhale fresh air all the way down...helps a lot
