I am seen by a doctor regularly. I take my preventatives regularly. I just need some tips if there are any about how to stay active when my asthma is not as good as usual. I am usually very active, but some days I just want to curl up and be a house cat. Should I just give up and sit out those "bad breather" days?

Do you have a heart rate monitor? Your heart rate may already up there with all the meds you are taking today.

I do fine most of the time, but my asthma is horrible today. I can do my strength training with simple exercises ok, but is there any cardio that I can do without exacerbating my asthma when it is bad? I have drunk like 15 glasses of water and had 3 breathing treatments today. I know the idea of cardio is getting your heart pumping. How am I going to burn the calories I am supposed to on days like these without making my asthma crazier. Any ideas? Or is it best just to lay out today? Repeat strength? Help me stay active.
