Exercising with Seasonal Allergies
Don't Let Allergens Interfere with Your Workouts

This is going to sound crazy but I started using nasal filters. I had heard about them and researched them online. The ones I got are called WoodyNose but there are others. It takes a few days to get accustomed but I can go out now and no sinus headaches!
You should add giving up dairy products as a way to help reducing the affects of allergies. My allergies are very severe and this is one thing that has really helped me. Dairy products increase mucous production in the body, and if you've got allergies that's the one thing you don't need more of! I gave up dairy a year ago, and while my allergies didn't vanish, I had fewer really BAD days, and they were less severe. To me, that's a serious win!
i'm so miserable! i also spent a day riding bikes in the park, and on the way home i started sneezing and could not stop. I have been exercising indoors since then and it seems to help. It's hard to get motivated to workout when you feel awful, but I'm always glad I did.
Aw yes, too little too late. I took a bike ride last week when tree pollens were off the charts and started a nasty bout with asthma. Tues. laryngitis, Wed. doc and then on to steroids and cough syrup (sleep blessed sleep). Thurs better but no exercise until today. Yesterday, allergist and a readjustment of meds and some helpful advice. Putting my nebulizer to work again and am breathing a lot better. Take care of yourself and you can exercise AND breathe.
Great article!! Another good thing to do is use a Neti pot to help keep your sinuses clear. I have been doing this since April and am happy to say that I am symptom free from my problems that I would get. Also, watch what you eat as foods trigger the symptoms too.
