Temp 12, DP 4. Did 4x1200, majorly trailing pack of Tony, Lindsey, Beth, Brent, Cate, and David. Basically starting with them, and soloing the workout. Splits were 4:46, 4:58, 4:52, 4:49
Breathing was awful - felt fine for the warm-up, but then flared badly during the workout. Puffed on my inhaler and tried not to force things, and got through 4 reps, but it sucked. I think it was partially asthma, and partially VCD, based on how both exhaling and inhaling felt, plus the noises I was making, the fact that the inhaler was only partially effective, and how quickly I felt better once the workout was over.
I've run hard in temps this cold and dry in the past, but never when I've been this out of shape. My hunch is that's why stuff flared today.
Very frustrating. Just need to move on.
Wore shorts under tights, and sportsbra under thick longsleeve under CAR jacket, plus snowboarding gloves, double headband, neckwarmer, and gaiters - felt well dressed for the conditions.
Breakfast was rice, hemp powder, smores and salted caramel GUs and coconut stroopwafel - sat well.
Breathing was Advair 250/50, Qvar, and multiple puffs of inhaler during workout (I think I hit 6). Breathing not good.
