There’s story of a man in Wuhan, China, who burst his left lung for wearing a mask while running . Is there in substance in this story?
Just a few months ago, the idea of heading out to run with your nose and mouth completely covered wouldn’t have even crossed our minds. But since the spread of Covid-19, it is vital for joggers and cyclists to wear a mask while they train in public. This has become a reality—even a necessity—for most, if not all, of us.
You may notice that your pace is slightly slower than usual, or you feel fatigued faster, and you’ll certainly notice the less-than-pleasant sensation of your mask becoming increasingly damp as you run.
