This is a great question and ALL of us deal with setbacks and challenges at some point.

First and foremost, we need to listen to our bodies. A little discomfort is one thing, but pain is something else. The goal we're trying to achieve is to be healthy, right? emoticon

Does walking help as opposed to running? Can you walk instead when it's cold? What about an indoor track or a shopping mall near you? Do you have access to a treadmill?

If not, you may need to put the walk/run on "pause" and do some other indoor activities--DVDs or other things you have at home--and start up again when the weather and your asthma get better.

Good luck and let us know how you're doing!

I've sort of stalled out at week 4, the weather has gotten much cooler and caused my asthma to flare up. When I did the first run of week 4, I did it without stopping to catch my breath or to stretch. Now that the weather has changed, I have stop midway through to stretch and catch my breath, it's so disappointed to feel like I've come this far. I don't want to give up, I'm just tired of the cold already!

How did you deal with the stall or roadblock?
