Hi everyone. After many false starts I have decided to try and lose some weight and get fitter.
After lockdown I am now over 5 stone overweight. I confess the first run was a total shock and my legs were aching. Hamstrings were super tight and ankles sore. Dragged myself out yesterday for run 2 which was still hard.
I'm looking for some advice with those that have Asthma. I was diagnosed in February and my meds aren't accurate yet. When I run I really struggle to get enough breath, even after using my blue inhaler before hand. My lungs usually loosen toward the end. I find it hard to breathe through my nose and out via my mouth, using mostly mouth breathing which I know is wrong.
Any advice from people who have asthma? Does it get easier and help your lungs? How do I push through. I literally look red faced and wheeze so loudly with a 30 second jog so I don't know how I will do week 2. Feel like I am dying. Dreading run 3. Help!!
