Help me please!
In short, yes
Were you just going out and running or following some sort of plan? if you were just going out i'm not surprised your asthma kicked in. Best thing to do is to search for Couch to 5k. YOu can get podcasts, apps etc. But basically it alternates walking and running and builds upwards. Focus on running at a speed you can hold a conversation at (As slow as that may be).
Having a plan keeps you motivated, and the way Couch to 5k is, its in acheivable chunks and will help train your lungs as much as anything.
My missus started out with asthma and couldn't run more than a few minutes without screaming for air. After following the plan (And a bit more) she completed the Bristol 10k at the weekend without stopping once for a breather.
Get out and do it
Thats the same plan
You just have to get out and do it - No-one is going to force you, you have to want to do it. Just imagine the feeling of pride when you finish that first continuous 30 minute run. You can do it, promise!
If you have asthma take your inhaler and your phone just in case you get in trouble. Preferably run in a well populated area.FromA Paramedic
Never forget my inhaler when I go out anywhere! Thanks guys! So what would you take when you go out besides your inhaler and phone?
