    You probably can't start where you left off. I think progression is slower for people who have asthma, so you'll have to be patient. Climate, pollens, air quality, etc are all factors that can affect your asthma. With those things not being an issue, I think the more you run, the better you'll feel when you run.


    Happy Trails
