Thursday at 9:45am is hopefully my FINAL doctors appointment and when I can get clearance to start running again! Assuming I don't have tuberculosis (which I really hope I don't have) I should be ok as my primary doctor already said it was dependent on what the specialist says. I've been thinking about training nonstop and getting back into the running with more of a methodical approach versus my usual "just go out and run until I have to be done" approach. I really want to incorporate more speed work and put in some interval work, Yasso 800's and Mile repeats at the local track at Paradise Valley Community College. Really looking forward to just getting outside and burning some calories. I've gained 10 full pounds since my last run on August 11th. 10. Really? Geesh.
