Ever since I can remember I have been involved in competitive sports…and ever since I could remember I have had issues breathing properly during strenuous activity. Never once had I encountered the words…exercise induced asthma.
As I got older we caulked up the wheezing and heavy breathing to the fact that I was not built to be a runner…and I bought it.
Everything changed on the mountain at tough mudder. Brendon happen to mention that maybe I had exercise induced asthma or E.I.A. Once I recovered from TM I began feverishly googling. One call to the doctor who said yes its sounds like E.I.A. and one prescription for albuterol later and I might just be a runner.
Day 1 of albuterol was odd. I took it 15 minutes before I began my crossfit workout. My heart was racing. I know I am constantly joking about needing roids…well here they were and I was not ready!! Tomorrow I plan on taking puffs about 45 minutes before the workout as my heart beats fast enough without the steroids…overall breathing was good though!!
…and I might just be a runner…holy shit!!
