At the moment, I coach long-distance track on a volunteer basis. I'd play with the cross-country team, too, but I'm substituting while I look for permanent work, and my pay checks can't take the hit for two seasons out of the year.
I probably won't be posting too much until my running gets back under way in a couple of months, but I do have a question about one of my runners. She has asthma, and I'm not really sure what to look for, since I don't want to hold her back too much. Fortunately, she seems to have a good idea of when she needs to take a break, but I'd like to have more info on the subject. I know a little bit about asthma itself, but not enough on how it fits into athletics. Can anyone suggest some good reading material?
Since I'm new to Livejournal, this will be cross-posted in several places. Sorry for the inconvenience.
