When you have a short intense burst of exercise such as sprinting you generate energy for this anaerobically or without oxygen. When you stop exercising you are still breathing heavily. This is your body taking in extra oxygen to 'repay' the oxygen debt.

The body uses a lot of oxygen during and following vigorous exercise. Therefore, more oxygen than normal has to be taken in following exercise to restore the body to its pre-exercise state. This additional oxygen is known as oxygen debt
