A few times now, during some of my more strenuous sessions, I have had a scent of ammonia while taking deep breaths, usually through the nose. I have never been able to isolate where the scent is coming from. I don't believe it is from my sweat, since the smell does not linger. Any advice / comments would be helpful.

it's from your sweat due to the by-products of proteins breakdown being excreted through the sweat glands.

Bet your pee smells the same too. It's the protein breakdown like Franklin said. Drink plenty of water as high protein intake will dehydrate you.
