Hi everyone, I need a fix of positivity and friendly encouragement, please! I haven't been running for a while. I've just come back from two weeks in Japan and for the first time, didn't take my running kit abroad with me. I thought it wouldn't matter and I wouldn't be bothered, but oh, I wish I had! I'm struggling at the moment - I've quite suddenly developed asthma and I'm sulking because this doesn't seem fair! After all, my lung capacity is greater, my recovery rate is much faster and I'm a lot fitter than I used to be so why should asthma strike now? I can't see me getting out for a run any time soon, as any form of movement seems to make me cough and wheeze.
I know many other people on here suffer with asthma and seem to manage it well. Any handy tips? Or tips on dealing with general apathy, of the type that says, 'well, you weren't a proper runner anyway so it doesn't really matter'? I'm sorry this is such a whinge Any help or suggestions gratefully received!
