Wednesday I was a little more cautious with the knee while running. I did 35 minutes and lots of stretches afterwards. The good news is that the new inhaler has been working really well to control the asthma triggers.
DC (dear companion) and I got books at the sale and I also got a bunch of dvds.
Today will be an early morning run, then grocery. Yoga right now.
Safe and happy runs, All!

I'm glad to hear that the new inhaler is working well!

Love book sales. Glad the inhaler is working.

I was just diagnosed in July with asthma and UGH! This sucks. It's way worth that EIA which I've had since 2001 and never had much problems with. I can't seem to get the asthma under control with meds and I'm wondering if my asthma/allergist is missing something. Probably not but since I've never had full on asthma it's freaking me out. I'm now on a 3rd new med (first didn't work, the second I've had for 2 weeks which was a sample and insurance doesn't cover so now I have a THIRD). It sure has made racing interesting these last few races :meh: What med are you on?

When I get back from today's all day classes, I'll tell you what meds have helped me. :happy:

:cool:

Theophylline (pill)
Singulair (half dose) for allergy
Dulera (inhaler) slower acting
Proventil (rescue inhaler)
I'm also on HRT which improved the asthma a great deal.
If I neglect any of those, I'd start triggering asthma attacks.
You can also email me if you have more questions. :hug:

Thank you. It's been weird for me because I already had been taking meds for other issues that are also used for asthma. I can only imagine how I would be if I weren't taking those! I have the albuterol rescue which I use before and during exercise. I've used that since 2001 when I was diagnosed with exercise induced asthma. I also have exercise induced anaphalaxys for which I take the singulair and xyzal. And now the regular inhaler which they've switched to advair (I think). Ugh. So many meds.

It has been my experience that when I was a kid, people with asthma were treated after the reaction. Now they treat the inflammation from many different sides and that has helped me a lot. I was using a long ago expired Dulera and I was triggering a lot. Now, after at least a week on the effective Dulera, the triggers have totally stopped. It takes a week or two for some of the meds to work (except for the rescue inhalers, they work immediately).

I wish.  It's supposed to be 90 here today. :cry:  It's currently sunny and 100% humidity. :roll:

I ran 5.2.  One of my usual routes.  In case you were wondering, I can outrun a track hoe. :laugh:

I have a dentist appointment today, then I am taking my grandmother to the doctor.
Parent - - By judyruns Date 2017-09-28 7:07 AM
Sometimes it feels like the humidity is 150% :cry: And sorry about the heat.
LOL about the track hoe. I misread it for "back hoe" :laugh::laugh: Good work on the 5.2.
Parent - By swandive Date 2017-09-28 6:31 PM
A track hoe is the same thing as a back hoe, except with tracks (like you'd find on a tank) rather than wheels and tires.  There was one on the road this morning. :laugh:
Parent - - By Arimathea [us] Date 2017-09-28 9:33 AM
What is a track hoe? Someone who hangs around the track cooing "hello sailor"?

Good luck at the dentist.

And I thought 100% humidity meant it was raining. Does that mean the air cannot absorb any more water?
Parent - - By swandive Date 2017-09-28 6:34 PM
See above.  A track hoe is the same thing as a back hoe, but moves on tracks, not tires.

Yup, it means that the air can't absorb anymore water.  It does not, however, necessarily mean it's raining.  100% humidity and no rain is common here. :roll:

I like my definition of a track hoe better...

Temps did not lower here. Expected to be 95 today.

3.2 with RN this morning, nice surprise to have her text. We had a good chat.
Parent - - By BRunR [ca] Date 2017-09-28 10:41 AM
We had a 30 degree drop from yesterday to this morning.
3 miles yesterday and crosstrained this morn with weights and Bowflex multitrainer.
Hopefully 5 this evening.
Parent - By Arimathea [us] Date 2017-09-28 1:17 PM
A 30 degree drop would be nice but that would still only put us at 65. Grumble mutter.
Parent - By swandive Date 2017-09-28 6:35 PM
Jealous of your temperature drop!
Parent - By swandive Date 2017-09-28 6:34 PM
Nice that you were able to run with RN!  Not nice about the temps. :cry:
