Ways to handle physical issues with haya-suburi?

One of the other entries about haya-suburi made me wonder about one of the physical issues I have been having with haya-suburi.
I had asthma as a child, but the medication put it into remission. When my Kendo club gets to our haya-suburi, we set it to two sets 100 due to how new most of our members are.
My asthma showed up out of nowhere one practice during haya-suburi. Around 75 it started hurting, but I thought it was just exercising and stuff like that. Around 85-90 my chest hurt so bad I could barely move.
I tried the second set, but I didn't even get to 30. Is there anything I could try, or should know to try and keep my asthma from interfering in my Kendo?Answer:
I am not a doctor so I hope doctors can answer this question. I think you should talk to your doctor.
All I can say is “stop when you think an asthma attack is coming”.
