Day 137 - Tried Jogging Again...

Thursday, August 15, 2013

My legs were no longer screaming at me from my first attempt at jogging. Without my inhaler, I can only go less than a quarter mile before the pains set in. Several days ago, I tried jogging after my inhaler use and I accomplished 1.5 miles! emoticon

I tried again today since I was a little skeptical that I actually could do it. Maybe it was just a fluke... It just seemed to good to be true, like I stepped into the Twilight Zone! LOL

I used my inhaler, walked a mile so that I know the meds are fully working before doing my mile. Talk about being very nervous! emoticon

Well, I did it! ...sort of. I lasted a half mile. My legs were so super tired and I was a little out of breath. sigh...

Maybe my lungs were not ready because of the 1.5 miles I did two days ago...not sure. Or maybe the meds were not kicking in full gear.

After walking for awhile, I tried it again and lasted another half mile due to my legs. My breathing was actually normal this time.

So...maybe I am on to something called exercise induced asthma and all I need is my inhaler!!!

Wow, it sure opens up a whole new world for me!!!

Maybe I will try a 5K someday... Oh the possibilities other than just walking!!!

    If you do try a 5k, check out Color Me Rad or the Color Run. Really an awesome time and it doesn't feel like exercise. ;)
