Are you sure you don't have enough air? Quite often you might think you don't have enough, but if you push yourself that little bit further - hey presto you actually do have enough!! I guess what I'm trying to say is that your problem might not be lung capacity but your own perception of your lung capacity. Have you tried doing breathing exercises? Say, breathing in for 4, holding for 4, breathing out for 4, stay empty for 4. Try this a couple of times, though make sure you stop if you feel at all dizzy (we wouldn't want you to keel over!!) After a while you could increase the beats to 6 or even 8.
Hope this helps!
