Step 2 - identify achievable alternative forms of exercise as well as what type of food would be available so I could keep on a good healthy eating regime
Step 3 - ensure that I had packed good working and walking shoes for each event
Step 4 - plan plan plan! even with the best of plans though, things don't always work out to your ideal.
I managed to walk for at least 20 to 30 minutes every day, got in 2 swims when I was home and between events. I also lost 3 kgs despite lots of "conference" food at fancy hotels that really weren't on the plan but were too delicious to pass up! The best news is that my asthma has barely needed treatment, despite a lot of heavy humidity and moisture in the air (up to 90% some days!). The walking was easy and comfortable and my lungs coped really well. even on 85% tp 90% humidity days!
Still don't feel ready to try a short run, however, soccer training will start soon and I hope to be ready to try a short sprint. Next week is back into routine and I will resume the swimming as it is really helping to improve these lungs a great deal.
