Question Exercise-induced asthma?

Hi everyone,

I have embarked on a new exercise plan, primarily using the ChaLEAN Extreme DVDs. I do just fine during the weight lifting segments, but the cardio portions usually trigger an asthma attack. I have severe allergies, and I usually only have an asthma attack if I'm overwhelmed by an allergen (like cat hair.)

The attacks are not quite as bad if I take medication in advance, but if I forget, I end up really paying for it. Does anyone else have this issue? I've had it come up before when I've overdone it on the treadmill. Is there a way to deal with it? I'm wondering if starting slow on the cardio and working my way up to more difficult exercises will stop the attacks.

Thanks in advance for any help!
