I just recently started working cardio into my routine and i was shocked at how unfit i was cardio wise i couldn't even run 1.5 mile under 12 mins.... took me 13 mins to run a mile... i haven't ran in years.
Any tips to start running without running out of breath to soon and having to walk i rather keep going a bit than walking and is twice a week to start off with good and does running distance and speed increase quickly?
Also i noticed i was a bit light headed when i started to walk and also a funny taste of blood or metal taste in my mouth is this normal?

You can't out-train bad nutrition.

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.

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 ;)

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.My Journal (RIP 05/11 - 09/13):

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.

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.
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.
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.

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?Les crevettes ont été cuite quand le téléphone a sonné.
