Topic - Air Pollution - Running

plyometrics - on 03 Apr 2014
OK. Prepared to be shot down and told the latest news about air pollution is nonsense. However, my question relates to my running during the past 2 days, when the levels have meant to be high.

I live in Kendal, which is generally away from the significantly affected areas. Current pollution levels in our part of the world are meant to be moderate:

I run, a great deal, and the past two training days when I've set off, within the first 5 minutes whilst warming up, I've been suddenly hit with an unusually tight chest.

I've managed to shake it off, but the remainder of the run hasn't been comfortable and sat at my desk now my chest still feels a wee bit tight.

Whilst I appreciate this may be nothing more than a simple pre-cursor to a bit of a bad chest, just wondered if anyone else has struggled out running during the past couple of days when levels are meant to be high.

Rest assured, not seeking medical advice, if I were worried I'd be hitting the docs.
