Conditioning going backwards

I feel like my conditioning is going backwards a bit. I tend to really get high heart rate and out of control breathing after about 12 minutes. I am working on my breathing. But after two years it seems like I should be doing better.
Granted, I am 50. That probably has something to do with it. But I am trying to do all the right stuff. I eat pretty well. Stay hydrated before a wod. Cytocarb 2 with protein after a wod. etc...
The heart rate and breathing are the bummer. I feel like I have the strength, but I am breathing so hard I just want to stop.
Does all that make sense? Any thoughts?

Is this a recent thing? What changes have you made to your training if any? What does a week of training look like for you?
