So I’ve been taking my inhaler 15-30 minutes before my workouts at CrossFit. If you missed my post last week, I talked about getting one for my exercise induced asthma.
I never really thought about needing an inhaler, ever. I just wondered why my breathing was so off compared to everyone else. I thought I was just pushing myself to exertion, or just really hard. Here I thought exercise induced asthma was a bunch of hoopla. Well, clearly I was wrong. It worked a world of wonder for my lung capacity and I feel normal when I work out now.
Sure I do take breaks when doing my WODs (Work out of the day’s) at CrossFit. But it’s not my breathing that is now stopping me, it’s the workout itself. I don’t have to stop or slow down just to get some deep breaths in. I can plow right through it. I feel a million times better. I know my lungs are opening up further than they’ve ever been. Which is a really interesting feeling. This is how it’s supposed to work! Now I get it lol.
I’m interested in hearing how many people actually suffer from exercise induced asthma as well. Do you? Leave a comment down below!
