Re: cycling and smoking: my confessions
i ran competitively in high school, and I am still an avid runner with a hookah habit now. I personally have experienced a bit of difficultly breathing while going on long runs. I think the mental aspect is huge when it comes to smoking + exercise. the power of the mind is the key. those long runs are when I have plenty of time to reflect on how my lifestyle choices affect my physical condition, which could contribute to the feeling of decreased fitness.
