After watching those fantastic Olympic games back in the summer I decided to up my exercise to a minimum of half hour a day on the ex bike and push myself to the limit. It was a kind of self imposed experiment as when you have a kind of Pulmonary fibrosis you have nothing much to loose. Anyway people around me started to comment on how much better I was looking but your never too sure wether thier just trying to make you feel better. Well my last respiratory test showed a slight Improvement which has never happened before so take it from me when they talk about the games inspiring people,It certainly worked for me!!!. I do push myself when exercising to a point where it feels quite uncomfortable but always feel better for it afterwards. I tend to cough and splutter but this seems to help shift the mucus that appears in my lungs every day. I'm never going to make Rio as a competitor in the next Olympics but I'll be happy to still be around to watch it on the TV. A very good Physio once told me that being out of breath is quite normal for us all, its just my level of breathlessness is at a different level to what it used to be. Top marathon runners choose to live thier lives suffering and being out of breath. After these words of wisdom I kind of took it on board and when I'm huffing and puffing now I never panic, Its ok I think to myself I'M ONLY OUT OF BREATH like anyone else, even healthy people get out of breath.
