Do allergies reduce aerobic capacity? (reduce cardio performance)

Just wondering, because ever since allergy season started in New Mexico, my runs have SUCKED. I'm fighting for air at a pace that would usually be really easy for me (10 minute miles). Even when I slow down to a pathetic jog, it feels like the entire time my body is struggling to get enough air. My heart rate is higher than usual, like CRAZY high for what is usually an easy pace for me.

Is this something related to allergies?

yes, allergies can fatigue your body in general.

yes, allergies can make it difficult to intake air, making your runs difficult

Is there anything that helps? My dr. prescribed me an inhaler to use 20 min before exercise.

Take Zyertec which is now over the counter. One of best meds out there for seasonal allergies.
