Exercised Induced Asthma?

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

It's been awhile since I have blogged. Don't know why I haven't...it just hasn't happened. Basically I have been doing well. I am down to 224.4 pounds. I have been doing my best to stick to my diet. I have been following my C25K running plan and have started 30 Day Shred.

Last night was Wk3 D1 of C25k. Basically for a part of the workout time last night, we had to double our running time which SUUUUCCCCKKKEEEDDD. Well I noticed while I was running, even during the walking portion, I was having a hard time catching my breath. I finished the workout just as planned and went back home to do 30 day Shred. I could barely do it. I felt awful. I was wheezing some. I have had small bouts of exercise induced asthma (I self diagnosed) before. But this was the worst yet. I really felt like I was sucking air through a straw. Afterwards I was so tired and MEAN emoticon (I didn't sleep well the night before) that I blessed my family with an early bedtime for myself, took 2 melatonin, and went to sleep. This morning my back, near my right shoulder blade feels as if it is in knots, and it hurts through to the front of my chest. I am not sure if it's from my wheezing workout last night or if it's from the way I slept. (I sleep on my sides which put a lot of strain on my shoulders. I have had problems with that before.) I have taken 2 ibuprofen, and am trying to work through it, but it's no fun at all.

I have no health insurance so I am going to make an appointment with the free clinic (Which is run with the help of my own doctor) and see what they can do for me about this exercise induced asthma. I don't want this to stop me from working out, or to hurt my workouts in anyway.

So I am pretty bummed...

I am in 2 different Biggest loser competitions. One is with my family and I am pretty sure I am not winning it, and the other is with one of the schools I work at and I am pretty sure I am not winning that one either. Lol! Aunt Flo is visiting again and I blew my diet yesterday, so I have to be extra vigilant with what I eat the next three days to make sure I lose weight again on Friday for BL Competiton #2.

Workout today is suppose to be strength training. I feel like such crap, i am not sure I will get it in. I will do what I can do and that's all I can do...

Everyone have a great day!

    I had exercise induced asthma years ago, doc put me on an inhaler and told me to get my weight down. It took me awhile, but once the weight was down substantially (I went from 205-159, now back up to 169) I noticed one day that I didn't have the breathing problem any longer. I wish you luck and keep the press on, the weight will continue to go down gradually. emoticon

    I have that, too, and use an inhaler before strenuous exercise, which then prevents attacks. Good luck!

    Asthma can make a big impact on your life. I certainly hope you can get some help with it!

    If you really do have asthma, please get it looked at. I hope your dr can do something for you. It can make you suffocate because the lungs aren't working right.

    Congratulations on your weight loss! Even if you aren't winning the biggest loser competitions, you're winning your own life competition.
