Couch to 5K


Not going so well. The problem is that I'm wheezy, so I have to stop and use my inhaler mid-run. 

Yes, I do use it before I set out. On the stairwell on the way down from the flat.

There are a couple of triggers - firstly it's suddenly got quite cold, and the cold air can irritate the lungs. Then we are also being warned of a peak of particulate pollution in the area just now, because of the bright, fine weather we've been having. "Asthmatics are invited to stay indoors."

I avoid the early morning cold by running mid-afternoon, but I guess the particulates are probably higher then. 

Still, I just stop, inhale, walk till the wheezing subsides and then resume.
