Hard breathing

So at 15 years old i jst started cycling as a hobbie doin about 10miles a day. During the cyling my breathings fine, but after my daily ride i sit down sweating and i take in a breath but my chest and back of throat hurts. Does this mean my heart and lung muscles r gettin stronger or do i need to see a doctor.

BTW, (i hav asthma if tht makes a difference at all.)

Considering your medical condition, you should definitely seek advice from your doctor on what intensity level would be good for you.

the sweating is the same with me too. My best bet for that is while your riding, the air in your face helps you to not sweat like crazy, but when you stop, it all just pours out of you because you have nothing cooling you off.

Ok thx guys, and i was wondering whether cycling as a daily hobbie (almost daily) will ultimately help my lung capactiy and asthma. I know this is simple stuff which i should already know but i am completely new at this.

Exercising is excellent for people with asthma. Some people only get asthmatic during and after exercise, especially in cold air. I used to have that problem, but it's gone away now.

If you feel your problems get out of control, see a doctor about it, but if you feel fine, you shouldn't worry.

The increased sweating after a ride is caused by not having an airflow over your body evaporating the sweat any longer.
