( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

Quiz the coach helps teens and tweens with sports and fitness related issues and problems like obesity, asthma, healthy eating questions, skateboard tricks and P.E. dilemnas.

So ya dig sports but need some help with your game? Don't understand some of the rules of football, basketball or hockey? Got a gripe about P.E. class, skateboarders, cheerleading, coaches, or anything? Why not ?

1Hey Coach,
I really like to run! But there is a problem. My coach doesn't give me all the support I need and my team always runs ahead of me. I have asthma and sometimes it's hard for me to keep up. I feel like I want to quit because I don't feel all the respect I should get being on a team. What should I do? Please HELP!

Hey NYGirl0292,
Playing sports and exericising when you have asthma can certainly present some challenges - but they're not so great that they can't be overcome. More intense activities like long distance running tend to me more strenuous on athletes with asthma, so you'll need to slowly build up your fitness level. Don't expect your teammates to slow down their pace, just so you "feel respected". Being on a running team doesn't mean that everyone runs at the same pace. Everyone needs to push each other and help their teammates do as well as they can. Talk to your coach and teammates about your asthma and let them know some of the challengs you're having. Having asthma means you'll have to concentrate more on training techniques and monitoring your breathing - but it doesn't mean you'll always be at the back of the pack. As your fitness level improves, your asthma should have less of an impact and you won't be so far behind your teammates.

Here are a few tips that will help you deal with your asthma, while running.

  • Before running, warm up up carefully and slowly. This will lessen the impact of a strenuous run on your lungs.
  • Cross train with other sports like swimming. It's a great activity to improve fitness and strength, and it rarely causes any symptoms of asthma.
  • Bring your inhaler with you while exercising and don't be afraid to take a breather if you feel an asthma attack coming on.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
