Just wondered whether anyone else is a runner and manages to keep it up in spite of their asthma? Before my asthma became worse and I had a flare up (which I've never fully got back under control as yet) in 2010, I ran 10k regularly. I wasn't the fastest by any means but I could run and my breathing didn't hamper me as long as I took plenty of reliever before hand. When I initially began running my asthma actually improved.
Now I am trying to get back into running and it is soooo hard! Part of that is my general fitness but a lot of it is the need to control my asthma symptoms during and after my run, and I am becoming anxious about trying because I don't want to cause another flare up.
How do people manage to run or do other strenuous physical activity and keep their asthma under control at the same time? Any advice?!
