Please explain if it is safe to exercise days after second-hand smoke exposure?

Sure: It sounds like a good thing. You also need to know your rights. You do not have to tolerate second-hand smoke.

It is safe: You don't want to exercise is when smoke is present in a confined area. If you are outdoors, you can always avoid the exposure. I understand that indoor smoking in public places is prohibited and if you are in a public place, quietly ask the manager to talk to the smoker and not to confront him yourself.
