Day 123 - Walked 5 miles with Slight Jogging

Thursday, August 01, 2013

I used my inhaler this morning before heading out for my morning walk. emoticon

I did the first 3 miles walking just to see how well I tolerated the inhaler. emoticon

I was doing I decided to see how far I can jog...which definitely was not far! Maybe 1/8 of a mile! emoticon

I was out of breath and my heart rate was up. No pains though, so that may be a good start. emoticon

After walking a quarter mile or so, I jogged again. This time, a slight chest pain. Then I walked. I did this for the next two miles. Walked a quarter mile...jog an eighth of a mile.

Overall, I had slight chest pains and a very mild pain in my lower jaw. Not sure if this is considered a success...since I was so breathless after my jog.

My "jog" is more realistically slightly faster than a brisk walk and slower than a typical jog.

As I am typing this blog, since I just got in from my walk/pathetic jog, I am noticing that I am not nearly as tired as I would have been before the inhaler. After walking five miles in the past, I am literally wiped out! Right now, I feel more refreshed than tired, if that makes any sense. emoticon

Tomorrow, I will do the same and see how that goes. Maybe I will push myself more with jogging 1/8th miles interspersed with my walking...

    Asthma is not fun! I'm sorry you're having to deal with that! But, the good thing is that you're working with it and not just giving up! Good job with youre walk/jog. I try doing that outside at least once a week and it's really nice except that it's so so hot here in Central Florida! Keep up the good work and you'll be jogging the whole 5 miles in NO TIME!!!
