Hi Sam *waves* - Do you use the Albuterol now? If not, then you may think about starting that or another asthma med considering that it seems your asthma is acting up. Excercise induced asthma is tricky and you should ask your doc about what is the safest way to get moving again. A couple things springs to mind though - take time to do deep breathing techniques (if your lungs will let you). Start slow by taking walks - things that are low impact that doesn't cause heavy breathing. Once you feel that you can handle walking, try upping the notch a bit by walking faster. If you feel that your lungs are "squeezed" slow down or stop but always carry your inhaler with you, just in case. Call up your doc though and ask about the excercises in addition to maybe a maintenance asthma med if he/she thinks you need one.
