That's what I was afraid of... might just have to save the outside runs for nice days only :( Thank you though!

That is pretty sound advice and precisely what I tell my runners who suffer from cold induced asthma, however if any of my runners have a history of asthma, the best source of advice is to ask their doctor who is most familiar with the situation.

It may be that you will need to take your runs inside to offset any issues.

My doctor has been treating me for asthma since I was about seven. I have prescriptions that I take everyday, but really the only advice I've gotten was to cover my nose and mouth in the cold and avoid anything that might trigger it.

CRRLYGRRL91,

Have you spoken to your doctor about this? He/she may be able to give you some information.

I have asthma, which can be triggered by cold air. I love running outside, but with the weather getting colder and colder, it's getting harder to do. I don't want to resort to running inside all winter- (the track bores me and I've never been a fan of the treadmill). Anyone have any suggestions? emoticon
