emoticon Starting to be able to jog was a HUGE deal for me. I started just trying to job a quarter mile and have just worked my way up to 1.5 miles now. I take my advair twice/day and take my rescue inhaler about 20 min before I run. It seems to help. I look forward to the day when its my legs that stop me from running and not my lungs.

No, but I have a followup on Wed so I will be sure to ask!
It's good to know that asthma doesnt have to hold you back. :)

emoticon I was rediagnosed last winter after about 30 years of no significant asthma. It's amazing how much better the meds are now. I have been able to run 5k's with airway restriction. If I know I'm going to be running, I will use my rescue inhaler before I go out (on top of my Advair which I use twice daily). Did your doctor talk to you about using the rescue inhaler before strenuous exercise.

Today I went on my first big walk since I started Advair 250/50. ( was just re-diagnosed after 17 years). I'd previously had no rescue inhaler and no other medications.)

I used to have to stop halfway and sit on a bench to catch my breath. This time I decided to walk on further than the bench with the intention of sitting on my way back. I got to the turn point where the trail ends and got a wild hair.
I jogged towards the bench for about 45 seconds. When I finished I was breathing hard, sure, but I wasn't having *any* airway restriction. NONE! Not only that, but when I got to the bench I realized I didn't feel like sitting anymore.

Sure, my walk was only a little over two miles, but it was a success.

I'm so happy to have this under control.
It was comforting to know that if I had an attack that the rescue inhaler was right there in my pocket.
