I don’t know what’s causing it , but I’ve had an unusually long string of bad breathing days lately. For the past two weeks , my peak flows and my dyspnea levels have been all over the place. Maybe its due to environmental stuff, like the weather, high pollen and mold counts….That sort of thing. I guess I shouldn’t rule out internal stuff either .Maybe it’s anxiety or stress. Whatever it is, I wish it would ease off.
I have a hard enough time walking when I’m feeling “good”. And , because I have very little lung reserve , it doesn’t take much to wear me out. Today for example, I was able to walk a total of six miles, but I had to stop for a rest break every single mile of it. As for the racewalking segments of my walk, at most, I was able to do, maybe one 50- meter burst, per mile . After each velocity burst, I would ease back down into a fitness walking pace and transition into some technique drills . (which also allowed me to catch my breath without stopping completely.
I just want to have a few good green days so I can get out there and racewalk my ass off, or at the very least, do a six mile non-stop fitness walk.
