how will we come to know when we are respiring anerobically?

We feel cramps in the areas respiring anaerobically during vigorous activity, due to build-up of lactic acid.
During heavy exercise or vigourous activity, our body cannot take enough oxygen to the cells for respiration. This means not enough energy is made, and the muscles need more. Thus in the absence of oxygen, pyruvate is converted into lactic acid to produce energy. This results in build-up of large amounts of lactic acid in the muscles and causes cramps.
