when i run i lose my breath so easily! i'm in good shape and run a lot but after 7 yards of running, i feel like i'm going to pass out! is it normal to have to stop running for a second and catch your breath?! when i was running a mile, i had to stop to catch my breath about 8 times. is it normal to have to stop? and what can i do to stop this so i can run long distances without stopping?

That helps you and also, pace yourself don't start off sprinting unless you have to. Well, I hope that helped! [ xoMarisox's advice column | Ask xoMarisox A Question ]

You should run more. You can make it a part of your daily routine or do it every other day. The more you run, the more you will get used to it and the less you will have to stop.

This was the case for me before I got my inhalers. You should go to the doctors and get it checked out just in case. It wont hurt you if you dont, but if it is asthma then the inhalers will stop this and enable you to run longer distances.

And it is DEFINITELY normal to have to stop. What you can do to be able to run long distances without stopping is to practice. Time yourself to see how long you can go without having to stop, and push yourself but pace yourself as well. If you keep doing this everyday for a few weeks, you'll see the numbers go up as you'll be able to hold out/run longer without having to stop. Good luck!

When you're running, stop, take 10 steps, and start again. Just don't take like 20 because you'll feel like you'll wanna give up.
