So the plan today was 7 miles (a step back week) but we would be doing them a minute faster than we normally run - so for me that would mean a 12:30 pace. I did well for a few miles and then things got tough - I started really struggling and couldn't quite pinpoint why, I was totally sweaty and out of breath and just not feeling right - then I started wheezing. So with about 1 1/2 miles to go I had to stop and take my inhaler (twice) and get my water belt and heart rate strap off me because I felt like I was suffocating. We walked the rest of the way in (thanks Rebecca for sticking with me!) and I took my inhaler again and I started feeling better. Today's weather was to blame for the attack I believe, it was very warm and very muggy and the air quality wasn't that great either.
