In brief: You can do it !!!!
but not too fast.
AS with all exercises, you must build yourself up to an acceptable level a little at a time . Exercise induced asthma can be helped be improved by not exercising when the weather is too cold (or too hot for that matter). . Talk to your physician about prophylactic use of your inhaler before exercising

In brief: Treatment...
Exercise-induced asthma can be treated thus allowing for exercise to be possible.
Treatment includes the use of a bronchodilator inhaler prior to exercise and again when exercise is stopped, if needed. If this is not enough to control your symptoms, see your doctor as there are other treatments that can be tried. Good luck!
