Smoking and shoveling snow?

In between sacrifices to the dark gods and bathing in blood to gain the powers of my enemies I also enjoy having a pipe while out walking the dog or running the snowblower. I find that latakia blends are especially well suited to the cold. Fwiw, if I am doing anything that involves serious work I don't smoke anything whatsoever as it would just be in my way.

Well, no snow here it’s very rare in fact Boxing Day 1962, was the last blast prior to that it was 1948.... of course when doing a task outside. I have a pipe, but that said I often go walking with a pipe.
When I'm doing something that requires a lot of exertion such as shoveling snow I get out of breath. I can't imaging trying to smoke a pipe when I'm out of breath. How do you guys do it?
I try not to exert myself beyond the reach of my lungs. If I do get short of breath, I put the pipe down- or take a smoke break.:byg:
