I’ve been reading posts here and there but decided to post today after completing week six and my first 25 minute run. I feel like I’m legitimately running now and can do 10 minutes easy which is amazing. However beyond 10 minutes and my asthma kicks in and my chest hurts. I had the worst attack since starting today, coughing for ages after. I take a preventer inhaler twice daily and carry Ventolin which I took a few times while running (so hard to inhale and hold my breath).
I’m hoping I just need to ride it out and my asthma will improve. Is there anything else that could help? Prior to running my asthma was controlled and I was working out in the gym fairly hard. I suffer with chronic back pain after an injury and surgery so avoided running. I’m paying for that today too but find my body has adjusted over time so should do again.
