I knew as soon as I started swimming on Sunday that something was wrong, just couldn’t get my breath, got steadily worse yesterday. Helped my dad move a fridge last night and I was weezing and coughing like an 80 year old with a 30 year silk cut habit !!
Been to the docs this morning, luckily my doc is a runner and takes things seriously when you say “I was struggling swimming in a Triathlon on sunday”, he listened to my chest and hooked me up to a machine to graphs my lung capacity. Turns out my lungs are working at just under two thirds capacity at the moment and he thinks I have a swollen trachia which is restricting my breathing. Aparently this can be made a lot worse with chlorine contact, hence why I was panic swimming ! So hopefully get sorted out and I’ll be able to redeem myself in the pool.
Anyways he’s given me a very strong dose inhaler to take for two weeks, never had one before. He said hopefully I should be able to train again by the end of the week, but to just see how I feel. So will have to miss my swimming lesson tomorrow and its wonderful weather for cycling !! Damn !!
So tonights training will be a gentle walk in the park listening to my mp3 player I think !
