A Difficult Run

It certainly wasn’t anything to brag about tonight. did you find the air heavy and humid? I had intended to run at least 5k tonight, however 2k in my lungs reminded me…”Hey you have Asthma, remember?” The air was so heavy tonight it was extremely hard I found to catch my breath and run at a decent pace.

I kept at it, and finished just the 3k course I have mapped out with MapMyRun.com. It was a slower pace….14 min for 3k. There’s always tomorrow to do better, and at least I was able to get 3k in tonight. It was better than the alternative…sitting down and doing nothing 🙂

I was politely reminded by our gracious hostess on “Share The Run” Blog that I should be inserting tunes that I run to. Well here’s one that popped on the iPod tonight and it was definatley an energizer to keep me moving.  See you on the trails!    Black Eyed Peas – Pump It

    Hasn’t this air been a challenge! My bronchitis is also active. I hope that asthma leaves you to run fast and far.

    I skipped the run tonight. The air is way to heavy. I’d rather pass a night then be at home with the asthma mask and machine on because I can’t breathe.
    Friday, or early Saturday morning….and hen I begin to lengthen my runs.

    Good job Paul on running even a little bit despite the challenge. I haven’t gone since Tuesday morning and I won’t get a chance now until Saturday evening. Also, “Pump It” is one of my favourite songs to run to!

    Even thought I am on the other side of the country, we are having the same problem. It is so humid here that running outside has not been an option for me. I did run twice on the treadmill, but I kind of feel like I’m cheating when I do that. With TV and air conditioning I almost feel like I’m not running at all!

    Do you have the option to run indoors Paul? I know my sister finds the air conditioning to sometimes be tough on her asthma, but better than all the humidity. Hope you can find a solution:)
