So I'm sick again (as you can see with my other post). But I'm a bit confused about when it's O.K. to exercise with asthma and when it's not a good idea. I guess I should clarify, that when I'm having trouble breathing, mostly I try to walk as much as possible at work, and when out, park my car far away in the lot, you know within reason, and as feasible. I just find it is so easy to get deconditioned if I do nothing.
That said, then I use a recumbent stepped at the gym and have been slowly building up to my rather meager 15 min. of cardio. Before the big asthma flare of Oct. I was up to 22/24 min. Anyways I do that, and then go for a walk outside on the weekend (weather and breathing permitting of course).
But then there is right now, where I was in the ED yesterday, and they offered to admit me. I'm pretty much consigned to my couch and should after walking anywhere except to the bathroom and to get some food, I should probably avoid my mail (the mold in it triggers me) and dusting as well at the moment.
Anyways, I would like to not give up on exercise but am a bit of a loss, as I don't want to make things worse either!
