It's Asthma

Monday, October 25, 2010

Hi Everyone. emoticon

I blogged several weeks ago discouraged at not making the progress I felt I should. A week ago I had an appointment with my doctor for another issue (which turned out to be tendonitis--Ouch!), so while there I mentioned the exercising I had been doing and how after so much time I was still having difficulty with my breathing. She suggested I might have exercise induced asthma and prescribed an inhaler for use before jogging. It's a miracle worker! Okay, I'm still not running at speeds to impress anyone but myself, but at least now I feel like someday I might be able to do a 5k. Or more. At least now I don't feel like I am going to drop dead in the middle of the road.

The first time out using the inhaler I did more jogging and less walking and saw a marked increase in my speed. My motivation is back! Nothing can stop me now!

Thank you to those who posted helpful suggestions to my last blog.
