Not sure if this is the appropriate forum, but here goes:
After particularly intense metcons, I sometimes develop a cough, despite not being sick (or at least I'm not ill immediately going into the workout).
I've done a quick search on the CF boards and this is what I found:
Some of the conclusions that come up include:
- low grade pneumonia
- exercise induced pulmonary edema
- exercise induced asthma
I'm not sure exactly what the distinctions here are. Any explanations?
Other personal observations:
- I'm not positive, but it seems that my condition is made worse or more likely to come about/recur whenever the weather outside is cold.
- My coughing persists for several days, not just for a few minutes or hours as noted by other sufferers in the above threads.
Some workouts that have prompted coughing fits that last for days:
- 4 rounds: run 400m, 50 squats
- Fight Gone Bad
Can anybody provide some more insight?
