Is this doing me any good??


Can you answer this for me.

For the past 4/5 weeks I have been excersising on an excersise doing on average 15-20 miles per day.

I manage to do 45 mins every day,Monday to Friday.

I have never had a cough with my condition.but this past week I am coughing all the time.

I'm beginning to wonder if all this peddling is any good for me,or is it helping me to clear my lungs?

Many thanks

That is a fantastic average! You must be pretty fit! I cannot imagine it is doing any harm - I thought exercise was good for you. The coughing could be the start of an infection, could be a bit of hayfever? You could either ask your doctor or ring the BLF helpline the nurses might be able to shed some light for you. Take care.

Take into consideration the past 4 or 5 weeks has had an increase in air pollutants such as pollen. But as Tad mentions check in with your doctor to be sure its not a lung infection and well done for achieving your exercycle results.
