So I thought it would be a really good idea to meet some people and go for a 5 mile walk this morning.
Thought 'oh well, I can walk a little way' (yes, and it makes me breathless) so surely if I just walk slowly I can do a long way, no real difference.
Foolishness! Nothing awful has happened because my asthma is not of the needing Costa and nebs variety (if it were I wouldn't even have considered it and probably wouldn't have got very far if I had), and I made it round the walk and home, but practically staggered in the door and now really knackered and breathless (PF is ok for me though)! I forgot that it's hard to walk slowly when other people aren't, and while I've had to modify it recently I'm normally a charge ahead fast-walking person - no more!
Also my legs hurt but that's nothing to do with asthma.
I was in a 'of course I can manage to do stuff normally, it's not that bad' kind of mood. And I obviously can, sort of, but perhaps would have been better to wait until AFTER I got some inhalers that work.
Has anyone else done this sort of thing - the 'hmm, let's see how far I can go, it can't be that bad' type?
uggh, need to go to the supermarket but reluctant to move.
