Health update

Finally, some positive news on the health front...

I saw my regular doctor yesterday. He said I look and sound good, except for some chest congestion. He cautioned me to take it easy still, and he wants me to stay off of exercise the rest of this week.

The good news...I can start very light workouts (probably just walking) sometime next week and see how it feels. If that goes OK, maybe a short run 1 or 2 times the week after that. Dare I hope???

It's getting warmer here, so maybe I can even do those outside. We'll see. But I want to make sure I'm fully recovered, and I'm not training for anything right now, so slower is better.Hope y'all are running long and strong!

Good news. Get fully well before you get at it again. Looking forward to reading about you running again.

Rick thanks for the encouragement. I plan to get out tomorrow AM for one or two, so I'll let y'all know how it goes! Good luck on your race, and don't do anything goofy to mess yourself up with just 6 days to go!!!
