Wheezing up the Stairs
I am 40-year old male and have recently started a running program (http://www.menshealth.com/fitness/cardio-training-plan?cm_mmc=BestLifeNL-_-687492-_-09162011-_-dek). I am now in week 3 and am on course (haven't started taking shortcuts yet.
The problem I am having is that despite this routine (yesterday 6 kmiles in just under 50 minutes) I still find myself wheezing when I get to the top flights of stairs. I thought by now these should be the least of my worries but I get aches (on quads just above the knees) and am out of breath. Perhaps it's normal and am fretting over nothing.......
Beethoven look at my profile.
If i run for a bus or climb the stairs quickly im out of breath.
I will get up the stairs before you him or the bloke next to him and unless the bus has warp drive im catching it...but i will be out of breath. This is for all the reasons Deadbox said and because your not training to run up stairs or catch buses.
In fact i rarely run around if im not training. I might pull something.
No im not kidding.
I guess being new to this and all, I thought running was running but never thought of the different types.
Big relief I tell you.
