Four months ago I could run/walk a 10 K race. More recently I became very fatigued walking 2 miles. Now I'm exhausted walking a short distance or climbing one flight of stairs. This seems to be an exacerbation of my Bronchiectasis. My concern is: is this the new normal or after the flareup will things get better and I will be able to walk at least 2 miles again. Health authorities tell us we should walk at least 7500 steps a day (that is 3 miles), but that is very difficult. Should I force myself to walk even if my legs ache and I'm so fatigued it is hard to put one foot in front of another. Moreover, after a little exercise I'm exhausted for the rest of the day. (BTW before bronchiectasis I ran marathons and did triathlons).
