Out of breath

My girlfriend and I took her friends little lad to the park one Sunday afternoon for runner around and kick and ball about he is 5years of age , so we tapped the ball to each other which was fine but then I decided to get him to try a get the ball of me and was a big mistake cause after five minutes I was struggling to breath so then I just sat down to compose my self get my breathing back to normal.which took about 5 to 10 minutes I just didn't realise how bad my cold is now I know running is out. That day worried me after that

Hullo, Peter. You dont say much about your past health history. It sounds to me that you need to check yourself out with the doctor. It could be due to a high pollen count or other conditions. Always worth while to nip things in the bud. All the best from Pergola

Running get is NOT out! Get on a pulmonary rehab course from your doc. I run I'm 63 and have 50% lung cap. I couldn't run 5 yards. I now run 2.5 miles 3 times a week. If you don't use it you will lose it. Go for it xxHH
