At this point I should no longer be contagious. The cough is hanging on, and according to the doc and some other folks who’ve been through this before, will likely do so for a long time. Months possibly. Since there’s no way that I’m waiting months to get back to running, I’ll be trying to start up again today or tomorrow. I have no idea how it’ll go, but I’m anticipating that I’m just going to have to tough it. I have some trepidation because I ran around the house a bit this weekend while playing with the dog, and that set off a pretty major coughing fit. But occasional pauses to hack up a lung shouldn’t be too much of an obstacle, right? Who knows, maybe it’ll speed the process of getting everything “cleaned out.” Regardless, I’m sure it will help me to build character.
I’ll let everyone know how it goes.
