I realize that as runners, we will all experience some type of setback every now and then. So often, runners will experience overuse injuries, sore muscles, tendinitis, and oh so much more, I'm sure. I have been so lucky to not experience any major setback since I began running three years ago. However, lately I have been really struggling with my breathing. I stopped running a little bit over the past school year. Yes, I admit I slacked off significantly. However, when I bounced back and began running again, I was unable to get a good breath in while I was running. My chest felt tight, and I had to "yawn" to get a deep breath, which wasn't really a yawn but rather it was more of a gasp for air.

That test was conclusive.
|Despite my breathing issues, we both got new shoes!|
So that's that, then. For now, anyway. I'm trying to work through it right now, back from square one, or at least it feels like it. For the past three months now, I have been on two daily asthma medicines, and I also have a rescue inhaler for when I'm running. I have been working through it, and I've been running a little slower than I used to, but I've been running nonetheless. In fact, just yesterday, I did 7 miles! Very very slowly, but I did it! Hopefully after my immunotherapy will help... we'll see!
