If I smoke a cigarette before I run 5km, will I condition my lungs?

If I smoke a cigarette before I run 5km, will I condition my lungs? So in future if I ran 5km with no cigarette it would be easier?

      Ok, let's say their are 2 subjects, A&B and they run 5km 10 times. Subject A never smoked a cigarette before running and on the 10th run hits "X" time. Subject B smokes a cigarette before the first 9 5km runs, on the 10th he doesn't. Who gets the better time?

    No idea. I do think people overestimate how much smoking impacts your ability to run. Mostly smokers can't run because they're in terrible shape. Runners who smoke don't seem hugely hindered by it.

      Me because I like a cigarette when I wake up but also to run, so I'm debating cigarette before or after run

        Well after the run.

        I smoked for years and ran. I don't smoke now and still run. The difference I think is huge. I am so much a better athelete now I don't smoke. Just so much lighter on my feet.

          I get that smoking hinders your capabilities but does that hindrance benefit. You're a specimen now but could that be down to all the years you exercised with a handicap

    You'd simply harm your lungs. It would be easier to run without it later, but only in relation to when you were smoking. It would be equal or (probably) worse than if you never smoked before, so no point.

    I used to do that, because I'd go for a run and use this as an excuse to have a cigarette away from my parents. Smoking is harmful, but a cigarette just before running makes it even worse. You simply can't breath properly.

    But the worst thing is the addiction. I'd like to have a cigarette every once in a while just for the buzz, but I can't or I'd relapse. Don't joke around with it, you'll regret it, and spend lots of money.

      So you'd conclude that smoking doesn't help to condition the lungs?
