    Could be any number of things from dental problems, to sinus issues, to improper diet.

    If it persists, see your doc.

    Start off at a pace you can handle. Each week up it by .2 mph. Every 2 weeks I try to run a straight hour at the slower pace to build endurance. When I did this I could run an hour @ 7mph with no loss of breath and could easily run 8mph for 30 minutes and then burst @ 10mph for 5 additional minutes.

    Now that I took a break from running, I lost a bit of it. I now try to do 6mph for 10 minutes, 7mph for 10 minutes, and each time increase my 10mph final push.

    The key is gradual increase and you will get used to it.
    I Rep back always. Put it in comment.

    Lightbulb

    That taste is normal when i started mma it happened every day my coach said it has something to do with iron in your blood makes its way to saliva. Kinda metal tasting like a spoon in your mouth.

    As for the cardio it just takes time gradually push farther everyday and watch as you progress faster every time.
    I always rep back ;)

    This.

    One of the most common issues leading to a "iron-like metallic taste" is activity that is far beyond your conditioning level (cardiac related).
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    It's normal for very intense cardio. Typically related to certain parts of your heart not being able to work as hard as other parts, so you end up with more blood in circulation which gives you the metal taste sensation. Something like that. If you google it you'll find the medical term for it, but I'm too lazy to do it for you.

    If it happens every time you are doing cardio then you probably want to go see a doc, and might want to think about backing off on the intensity and working your way up a little more slowly.

    Makes sense. If you do the same workout for a week, then shortly within the week it won't be as bad. If you are doing MMA like quote above, then it's probably easier to get ahead of yourself after each session.

    Like Peter and IronWill said, if it happens after the same workout, after doing it rather frequently (with at least some considerable rest, mind you), then talking to a doctor about your specific activities is a good idea.

    edit: Just realized your mile pace, and it's a bit out of shape.

    This is good agenda to follow. Key word is pace. Pick a time limit, and do a speed with some energy to spare.

    Found a good article talking about this:

    METALLIC TASTE IN THE MOUTH DURING EXERCISE
    Jun 14, 2011 | By Matthew Larson

    You may have experienced a metallic taste in your mouth during exercise. There are many conditions associated with this symptom, so it is important to discuss your particular case with your doctor. However, a metallic taste during exercise is not necessarily cause for alarm, particularly if there are no other symptoms. The metallic taste may present when your heart is unable to keep up with the physical demands you are placing on it. Or, it may be due to mild pulmonary edema and the subsequent accumulation of red blood cells in your phlegm.

    THE UNDERPERFORMING HEART
    What is likely happening during exercise is a very mild form of heart failure, or poor heart performance. Normally, your heart is pumping out exactly how much it is pumping in. The system usually runs very smoothly, resulting in the proper flow of blood. If one element of the pump is not performing at full capacity, fluid may accumulated in unwanted places. If your left ventricle is not able to pump blood out of the heart at the rate the right ventricle pumps it into the lungs, fluid accumulation, or edema, may result.

    RED BLOOD CELLS
    Red blood cells are highly specialized units that are basically bags of hemoglobin, a molecule which has evolved to efficiently carry oxygen. Our red cells carry around hemoglobin in groups of four subunits, each connected to a center iron ion. Fe++ is the symbol for this ion; Fe standing for iron and ++ standing for its total charge. Our tongues carry receptors that respond to Fe by sending a "metallic" signal to the brain.

    ALLOW YOUR HEART TO CATCH UP
    Your body is capable of dealing with this mild form of cardiac underperformance. You have probably experienced the relief of symptoms when you stopped exercising long enough to feel rested. As your left ventricle steps up its game and the demands from the right ventricle decrease, the fluid is cleared out and red cells no longer accumulate in the lungs.

    EXPERT INSIGHT
    According to MayoClinic.com, full-blown heart failure produces symptoms including shortness of breath. This can be accounted for by an even more extreme accumulation of fluid than seen with intense exercise. Nevertheless, the same essential pathology is occurring in heart failure as in high-intensity exercise.

    APPLICATIONS
    Understanding how to interpret clinical symptoms can be a useful skill. The idea that the heart functions like any mechanical pump allows you to reason through disease processes affecting your cardiovascular system.

    OP, start at a pace you can handle and sustain. This may be walking for the the first few attempts. You only get better at running by doing more of it.

    So, just posting for serious answers....

    When I go sometimes for chest, at my 6 reps (and it is a one step over my normal weight, progression ) I feel that metalic taste in my mouth.....

    It normally comes after the 1st set of 6's, probably at the end of the 5th-6th rep of set 2 and 3.

    As it is not cardio, and as I do have some heart problems (faulty valve, valve murmur)....what's your insight?
    If your body cannot handle it, make sure sheer willpower will.....

    Pulmonary edema and red blood cells in the phlegm. Sounds about right. This is a fun condition for smokers.

    XADO I'm kind of familiar with what you're talking about. Just curious if you've familiarized yourself with higher and lower rep ranges as much?

    METALLIC TASTE IN THE MOUTH DURING EXERCISE
    Jun 14, 2011 | By Matthew Larson

    You may have experienced a metallic taste in your mouth during exercise. There are many conditions associated with this symptom, so it is important to discuss your particular case with your doctor. However, a metallic taste during exercise is not necessarily cause for alarm, particularly if there are no other symptoms. The metallic taste may present when your heart is unable to keep up with the physical demands you are placing on it. Or, it may be due to mild pulmonary edema and the subsequent accumulation of red blood cells in your phlegm.

    THE UNDERPERFORMING HEART
    What is likely happening during exercise is a very mild form of heart failure, or poor heart performance. Normally, your heart is pumping out exactly how much it is pumping in. The system usually runs very smoothly, resulting in the proper flow of blood. If one element of the pump is not performing at full capacity, fluid may accumulated in unwanted places. If your left ventricle is not able to pump blood out of the heart at the rate the right ventricle pumps it into the lungs, fluid accumulation, or edema, may result.

    RED BLOOD CELLS
    Red blood cells are highly specialized units that are basically bags of hemoglobin, a molecule which has evolved to efficiently carry oxygen. Our red cells carry around hemoglobin in groups of four subunits, each connected to a center iron ion. Fe++ is the symbol for this ion; Fe standing for iron and ++ standing for its total charge. Our tongues carry receptors that respond to Fe by sending a "metallic" signal to the brain.

    ALLOW YOUR HEART TO CATCH UP
    Your body is capable of dealing with this mild form of cardiac underperformance. You have probably experienced the relief of symptoms when you stopped exercising long enough to feel rested. As your left ventricle steps up its game and the demands from the right ventricle decrease, the fluid is cleared out and red cells no longer accumulate in the lungs.

    EXPERT INSIGHT
    According to MayoClinic.com, full-blown heart failure produces symptoms including shortness of breath. This can be accounted for by an even more extreme accumulation of fluid than seen with intense exercise. Nevertheless, the same essential pathology is occurring in heart failure as in high-intensity exercise.

    APPLICATIONS
    Understanding how to interpret clinical symptoms can be a useful skill. The idea that the heart functions like any mechanical pump allows you to reason through disease processes affecting your cardiovascular system.
