Running Without My Inhaler – Mistake!

Friday, July 16th, 2010

You will obviously not know but I suffer from asthma – not overly serious as it only ever affects me when I do any exercise or hang around cats and dogs – but I avoid that.

I’d decided to go for a brisk two mile run last night as my legs were a bit stiff from my run on Monday. Immediately I realised I’d forgotten to take my usual inhaler puff before my run, “it’ll be fine… it’s only two miles” – wrong! I made it to the half-way point easily enough while noticing my breathing wasn’t as easy as usual but had to stop completely at 1.5 and walk back to the car gasping for air “nhuuurr nhhuuurrr hurrrr” .

I was fine once I’d got home… just a bit disappointed to have a failed run.

So yes, the moral of the story is: if I forget to use it… go back and do so!
