    Getting irritable and emotional is a symptom of over-reaching in training. Cut the duration or ease up on the intensity until you recover. If that's not possible in your group training then take a day off. Breathing problems could be an indicator that your working beyond your current fitness level. Reign things in some and allow recovery to happen and aid in achieving the adaptation to your current fitness level.

      The breathing thing isn't cardio fitness related - the situation wasn't that exhertive even - but it literally felt like my chest was tightening, and after stopping, sitting, no matter what i did, it continued.

      It may all very well be that I'm not eating enough. I'm still eating for the old me who did some light workouts a couple of times a week, whereas now I'm doing weights/strength 3-4 times a week interspersed with conditioning and running/jogging. I just can't seem to fit that much IN! :P Especially on workout days when I should be eating more, I just don't feel like eating. On non-workout days I barely manage 2000cal, workout days I have to push myself past 1500cal. I have to keep track of my macros because I don't end up eating past 100g carbs per day.

      Someone asked what MA i do: currently it's European armoured combat, had been doing Kenjutsu for the last 6 years.

            My own background was founded in Liechtenhauer's longsword, but these days I find myself doing dagger work. Looking outwards, though!

              Hey, I got this too!

              I went to my karate training, same as always, and (thankfully before we started) suddenly I felt the most depressed I've ever been, and I barely made it out before I started crying. I found somewhere quiet and just sobbed for about 10 minutes. Afterwards, I was fighting tears the whole time, and I love training. Plus, I never cry.

                Hi allenete,

                I wouldn't race out and reconfigure your diet/regime from something like this, if your fairly happy/comfortable with with what your currently doing. If weird events like this continue over a few weeks then I would start looking at carbs/cals.

                The human body can do some unexplainable stuff some times, for example: a few times a year before my weekly competitive football match I get a sudden onset of intense pain in one of my leg joints. I used to have to pull out of the match but five minutes later I get a full recovery and retake my place with no further issues, my team mates are like " WTF dude". Now I can recognise this when it happens and not get to concerned.

                I think something like this happened to you, so it may not be dire straights, a word of caution tho, it could be the start of a chronic issue, so monitor carefully.

                  This part makes it sound like a stress-induced panic attack.
