We finally got word from my doctor that I could return to work. After being out for over 8 months, I am pshyched to say the least.
The plan is for me to gradually build up to 40 hours a week from home over the next couple of months.. I am still waiting on final approval, but it looks like I will start working 2 hours a day, 5 days a week from home on April 18th. I will do that for 2 weeks and then go to 4 hours a day. 2 weeks and then 6 hours a day. 2 weeks and then 8 hours a day from home. I am very fortunate to work for a company that has held my position for this long. Thanks PWD!
As far as training goes, I am slowly making progress. It is frustrating as hell to only be able to run 1.6 miles in 30 minutes. I used to do close to 5 miles in 30 minutes. My progress this week was 1.5 miles in 30 minutes to 1.6 miles in 30 minutes. .10 mile improvement!!! I have added a little widget in the right hand column of the blog where you can track my training if you are really bored. Right now, the numbers are not to great. They will improve. I will run a 5K this year and I will finish in under 30 minutes. (maybe if I type it, it will happen)
