Fitness Poll: Are Seasonal Allergies Keeping You Indoors for Exercise?

Are Seasonal Allergies Keeping You Indoors for Exercise?

The beauty of Spring is a double edged sword. Everything is gorgeous and in bloom, but the pollen count is soaring! When the weather is dry and breezy allergens abound! Sneezing and biking seems a dangerous combination under those conditions. So what I want to know is . . .

It's a bummer because allergies hit when the weather is nice - and by the time mine mellow out its too hot to exercise outside. I do like walks, though, any time but winter.

i do both. i work out hard core at the gym so i can get my energy out. then i go on nice long walks with my boyfriend during the day or at sunset. then i get the best of both.

it was 40 degrees today, totally windy and i think it hailed earlier, so i'm staying in for different reasons.

I don't get allergies from working out outside, but I'm seriously pissed about the weather here. It was SNOWING today. Yes, in APRIL.

I love to be outside but when it comes to exercising I have allergies, so it's inside for me with yoga and my treadmill.

I live in the far northeast so we're just finally getting rid of the last of the snow. The allergens aren't out yet for me.

It's been rough :-( i feel it makes me lose my zone when all of a sudden i have to sneeze like three times consecutively. but it hasn't stopped me from working out outdoors..the days have been beautiful and i just love being outdoors, so i just bring a couple sheets of tissue.

yes. I developed allergy-induced asthma in high school. I can run fine outside at home, presumably because I grew up with that type of pollen. At college, I'm SUPER allergic to the type of pollen here.

It's not allergies keeping me indoors. It's supposed to be 100 tomorrow. I can't run when it's that hot. Damn desert!

Yes, they are keeping me indoors and I hate it! I only go out for a run after the rain, when the air is a little better.
