Re: 8 Steps to Help You Tackle Asthma and Exercise Safely

Katie D ·
The opening statement is such a powerful message, "it is important for everyone to exercise, even if you have asthma." These children are so engaged and in touch with their symptoms. It is great to hear them talking about the preventive measures they are taking in their daily lives; I love how we can all use technology now to help too - like an app to measure pollen counts and air quality days.

Thanks @AS ! I'm definitely learning how to read my body better. There are subtle signs I was not realizing. That should hopefully allow me respond to asthma episodes before they become severe.

My sincere apologizes @K8sMom2002 for the delay in getting back to you! Oh, they have been on big adventures this summer. We flew across the country to visit their great grandparents and grandparents! (It was our first time in 3 years that we were able to make a trip back to our "hometown" in Michigan). We then drove to Canada to get him and big brother some safe snacks! Went orange picking, bike rides, walks, and at home learning lessons.

Re: The adventures of a boy and his pig

AshleyAnn ·
They went well - Wahoo! Flights are so nerve wracking. We have only flown Southwest and since we have had good experiences, it has become our preferred airline. The first flight, there were a handful of people pre-boarding with us because they had peanut allergies too. Our second flight, the pilot told me that our previous flight also had a peanut allergy passenger so they did not serve peanuts on the flight before us. Southwest did not serve peanuts and since we were able to pre-board, I...

Oh kathy this is great! In response.... ...whether you finish or not the training is worth it! Most important is that you have the courage to start! Do it for all of us, some of us aren't at that level and it is inspiring to watch and cheer our friends on. We ride with you my friend. Prayers and best wishes for great weather, staying above the allergens, building up your lungs and body and freedom from any incidents to slow you down. gigi

Kathy, I am training to walk a half marathon on October 1st and I have many of the same concerns. I am doing well with training now, but I am concerned because July and August are my bad months for asthma and allergies. I also have trouble with hot humid weather. I am encouraged by your story and I am excited to follow your journey while I continue with mine!

Re: Kathy P Trains to #TackleAsthma

Kathy P ·
Welcome @Karen B PT ! I totally understand about weather concerns. My allergies are flared right now with certain trees and it's really a struggle! I'm trying to not let fear of an attack keep me from riding. It's hard some days! Then it's going to get hot here in July and August which is also an issue for me. I'm glad my story is encouraging for you! I'd love to hear more about your training and goals. I'd like to invite you to join us on the support forums to share your story. To start a...

Kathy P Trains to #TackleAsthma

Kathy P ·
Clearly, I’ve lost my mind! I’ve committed to train for and participate in a half century (50-mile) bike ride. That’s not the crazy part. I have asthma and it frequently becomes a factor in what I do. Will I be able to keep my exercise induced asthma under control so it will allow me to even train for this ride?
