Could it be that some allergies are cropping up? We have a very heavy pollen count in my area. People that were never affected before are now showing signs of being allergic.

You're gonna run every day in BCT. Keep a close watch on that. You may not be able to complete basic if that keeps up & you're not able to finish a run.

Have you checked with a doctor? It might be a good idea. There's still time to take medication that'll help if the doctor prescribes it.

If it's a temporary condition you might be able to talk to your recruiter & wait a bit longer before leaving for basic training. Catch the next class or the one after it. You'll need to see a doctor so he can diagnose your problem & give you a letter to show your recruiter. You're going to want to be in the best shape possible before shipping out.

Solid advice again Glenn....

If it's allergy's, the good news is that most of your running will be done in early morning while the air is still clam and not so thick.
You will be built up. The pace is slower at first and before you know it your running like a deer. The pain will go away. Just suck it up and drive on.

Sounds like allergies affecting the Alveoli sacks in the lungs my brother had it...it can happen even if pollen levels are low..the sacks get blocked and the intake of oxygen burns....steriods can be used to clear it

the other thing that springs to mind is.....it my be Asthma....witch could cause a problem

True..jrj...If it's allergies..not that big of a deal, steriods will clear that up in no time. But Asthma could be tough on her..Like Gunbunny said, soldier on candee...Down in the carolina's this time of the year is hot. Time to be a hard charger...You'll be fine. Good Luck..

Watch your mouth little boy!

jrj never claimed to be a doctor. He's speaking from personal knowledge. I can tell you all you want to know about juvenile diabetes. My grandson has it. Two years ago I couldn't even spell it.

I can speak with great authority about sports medicine. I was & still am a coach.

I can speak with at least some authority about hot & cold injuries, dehydration, blisters, & even wounds. I was in the military for 27 years.

Ain't no way I claim to be a doctor. I just know that stuff from experience, from what I experienced first hand, & from my training (non-medical). Why shouldn't I expect other laymen to know things they have experienced?

Next time engage your brain before using your fingers to type this drivel.
