every year you smoked, it takes 4 years for your body to repair the damage caused by one year of smoking. if you smoked for 10 years you'll be back to normal healthy lungs in 40 years. i smoked for 9 years and i quit in November-ish (it's Jan now) and i can run a mile in 9:22 (which for me, never having run it in under 12, is AMAZING)

i run everyday and i can run for about 10 minutes without getting really out of breath. i think you just have make your lungs work a little hard in order to be able to handle it, just like muscle building.
