Roads were made for journeys...
Out of curiosity ... why are you stuck on the t(d)readmill? Why not run outside (at least for the next month or two)?

Okay, maybe it won't help, but it should make you laugh!
Stuck on the Dreadmill for the weekday workouts so far because ... 2) I haven't managed to convince my body it loves running so much to wake up at an ungodly hour to get it done first thing in the morning.
Needs more cowbell!
There are people in here with asthma. I think zoom-zoom's one of them.

This will be my first Winter running, so I wonder what that will do to my lungs. I can remember in HS that I didn't like running outdoors when it was really cold and dry and that it led to a bad hacking cough, but I'm not sure if that was an asthmatic issue, or just general dryness irritating my throat.
The hacking cough I had today I am pretty sure was asthmatic related, and I know it gets worse with heavy pollution which is fairly common here in the winter if we don't get rain.
I spent a semester in the UK back in the early 90s and got sick with some nasty sinus bug that had me feeling like death for 3 weeks and crap for the following 3. I'm certain their cold, damp weather combined with the awful pollution didn't help matters. That was before I was diagnosed with any sort of asthma, but I have always had sinus issues and it really made life miserable for a while. I probably should have been on an antibiotic for a bacterial infection, since I had all of the symptoms that I now have when I get raging sinus infections.
