Asthma + Exercise = No Attack?
Tuesday, September 08, 2009
Ok, so I've been asthmatic since I was 5, and not lucky to have allergy asthma, but I got exercise indused asthma. And this past week has been the week of asthma hell. I have been wanting to get back walking but just didn't trust my lungs. So yesterday I finally geared up for a SLOW walk, easy does it, right?
I started exercising in april and that lasted for only a few weeks, and i think that was because I over did it. So yesterday I got my ipod, put on my sneakers, took two puffs of my inhaler and out I went. 1.9 miles in 50 minutes, no shortness of breath or anything. When I got home I also did the core strength training Spark has suggested. I feel really good about this........not really too concerned if I;m getting a real areobic exercise right now. Just figuring that if I can build my body and lungs up, by the time I get my asthma back under control areobic walking isn't going to be as much of a problem as it has been in the past.
