I am a new runner with mild (allergic) asthma and while I don't have "attacks," I breathe much better on some days than others.
What you folks do when you are having a bad asthma/allergy day or are sick with a cold/sinusitis? Do you just run as hard as your body will let you, or do you rest completely?
I do not have asthma "attacks", as such, but I have had tightness in the chest and wheezing upon deep exhalation. What cured it for me was Phytocort. http://www.nutricology.com/PhytoCort-120-vegetarian-capsules-p-16644.html

ASHMI is the same as Phytocort.
Hi, i have moderate asthma that is triggered by a variety of things including bad air (ozone, dust etc). What I do is still run by take my fast acting inhaler & puff before I start & have with me while I run. I also chew gum & take plenty of fluids as I find I am less prone to attacks if my throat is not dried out. Unfortunately for those running with me I'm a mouth breather so sometime my breathing will be quite loud. I also find that if I'm starting to get congested I get some relief from Muscinex.
