Having Trouble With Breathing?

I've been consistently running for the past 3-4 years or so.  This past spring I did a half marathon and have been doing 5k's in around 25:00.  I have been running actively 3-4 days per week, 3-5 miles each time.  However, in the past few weeks (especially during cross country practices and intervals) I have been unable to catch my breath, yet I don't feel tired.  I was doing fine earlier this year and was satisfied with my running, and I do not know what is happening for me to feel like all this progress has been for nothing? Any suggestions or breathing exercises or something so I can feel normal again?

    Having Trouble With Breathing?

    It's possible you may have developed exercise-induced asthma, or you have allergies that are affecting your breathing.  One sign of this would be wheezing.  Try posting in The Med Tent.  There are a couple people responding post there who may be able to give you a better answer.
