Allergies and Running Performance

Post by Tom Hoffm » Fri, 28 May 1993 23:35:32


Does any one out there know if allergies can effect running performance?
I have acquired some pretty bad allergies in the past few years, and coincindently my running performance/stamina has drastically gone down hill.
My wife tells me its all in my head, but I disagree.  

Thanks for any information,

I don't know how allergies affect performance.  I'm sure it affects some
people much as an illness would.

For me, a hard run (race or interval workout) seems to bring on an "allergy
attack."  It doesn't seem to affect me during the run.  But once I stop, I
can have sneezing and a runny nose for quite a few hours afterward.
