The other day, I came across the story of Gavin Dolman, a 32-year old man from the United Kingdom who, despite suffering from asthma his whole life, regularly participates in triathlons and other high-stakes races. He’s even managed to conquer Mt. Kilimanjaro - a commendable feat that becomes all the more impressive when you consider the risks of oxygen deprivation and altitude sickness the trek poses for non-asthmatics, let alone those who suffer from the condition.
Dolman’s story is the perfect counter-example to one of the most prevalent misconceptions concerning the disease, which currently affects one in twelve Americans: that Asthmatics are somehow incapable of participating in strenuous, sustained exercise. Though the condition mandates additional precautions and tools, it need not prevent runners from pushing themselves to the limit and taking on major hurdles. If you suffer from asthma or other pulmonary difficulties, here are 5 things you need to keep in mind as you train for your own Kilimanjaro, Rocky style.
With these tips in mind, hopefully you can follow Dolman’s example and achieve success in your training. Take time to tend to your lungs, and there’s no mountain you can’t climb!
