I never go on a walk (or a Galloway walk/run) without my cell phone. I also wear an ID tag on my shoe that lists my medications, name, emergency contact etc. You can get the ID tags at running stores and at sporting goods stores.

I had (when I was working out religiously) learned to differentiate between shortness of breath that comes from being in bad cardiovascular shape and the shortness of breath that precedes an asthma attack. It was one of the best lessons I ever learned because it helped me to push myself when I could, and take it easy when I couldn't.



Alice came to a fork in the road.
"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

Welcome! You have some good suggestions! I was walking today and had to find a place to sit down. Had never thought to plan for that until I read your post this evening. Thanks for the suggestion about the cell phone, too.

I use my inhalers before I begin excersizing or walking, I have plenty of water. If I feel I am getting to short of breath I rest for about 2 minutes which seems to be ample time to restart my walk. I go many places walking, and know where all the benchs are in order to rest, and also have my cell phone incase I get into serious breathing problems, (recommended by my doctor)
