It's not uncommon for dyspraxic pepole, there are 2 problems I think:
1) Dyspraxic movements tend not to be as efficiant because of the whole balance/coordination thing
2) Dyspraxic pepole tend to get made fun of in many sports as kids, discouraging an active lifestyle.

There's also muscle tone, but I'm not sure if that's to do with the dyspraxia or with problem number 2. I know my muscles start shaking when I expend a "normal" amount of effort even though I estimate that I get 6 - 8 hours excercise a week depending on how much of fencing I spend actually fencing.

I get hot easily, but I have quite thick hair and I get dehydrated easily making it harder to sweat.

Same here, though I shake a lot and have to sit lie down for a few miuntes after a run. I also get out of breath really quickly. et another reason I love archery.

I can't run for a long time. I tend to use all my energy up with running really fast for about 5 minutes and then I can only walk the rest of the way, hence why I always came last in cross country expeditions and Sports Day races at school.

I dont overheat, but i cant really run, or even jog, for a long period of time. A few months ago, to lose wieght :P I took up jogging. Read all kinds of tips etc on the internet. After about 5 months, i could still only jog for about 1-2 minutes non stop *, so cause i lost the weight wanted anyway, i decided to quit :lol:

Weight aint shifting anywhere now though so, it doesnt matter anyway 8)

*I can recover faster though. After walking for about 20 seconds i can go back to jogging again.

I have mild asthma. I've heard that there's a correlation between asthma and SpLDs, but I don't know how sound the evidence for this is.

I've started skipping and doing weights recently and it's amazing what it does for you in a matter of weeks. I feel a lot healthier and better about myself. You probably just need to do slightly less strenuous activities for longer.

I get out of breath very easy, I could run for a few minutes and then I would struggle.
