In case you missed my previous post, I’ve taken up running*. Or at least attempting to run.
Its nothing much at the moment, just a quick stamina run around the block. (As it fits in with family life nice and easily).
I’ve just came across, and thought it was interesting. Sharing here, in case someone else out there is just beginning to go for a run.
*I say running, I mean running, jogging, fast walking, stumbling, etc…
Here’s the thing. I’m not the fittest person. I quite like things like beer, pizza, and crisps.
IBS also sucks, and apparently exercise helps with it. (As well as helping a sense of overall sense of well-being)
So I figured “Why not?”
I didn’t run far.
But I guess it’s a start.
I’m going to go and ache now..
Have you got any running tips?
Ok. I realise the internet is filled with requests to sign petitions, but I’m going to make a crack at saying why I’m asking you to sign one, asking for Asthma medications exempt from NHS prescription charges.
You know how you get ill, go to the doctors and get a prescription? You know how you take that prescription to the chemist, pay some money, take drugs home, use drugs and then get better. (In theory)
When you have asthma, its not unexpected to need multiple prescriptions, for multiple drugs, that you need to keep taking. This is to avoid the feeling of your chest becoming tighter, and struggling that little bit more for breath at times.
With that in mind, do me a favour, and sign this petition.
The petition at 38 degrees.
