Compounding my paranoia is the fact that I have had plantar fasciitis problems in the past and usually KT the heck out of my feet and ankles just as a precaution, which I plan to do once I start running. I only have four days left on the antibiotic and doubt if asking my doctor to change at this point is worth it. Plus, it does seem to be helping with my illness, which already survived a Z Pack. Also, I'm beginning to worry about my readiness for my half marathon because I lost most of July to this illness. Granted in June I was way ahead of where I needed to be and was already doing nine mile long runs. I think that if I can shake my illness, I might be able to get back into the train groove quickly.
I guess my questions are how worried should really be about the Levofloxacin? Has any of you had any experience with this drug?
Also, do you think that I should adjust my training program to a 8 or 9 week schedule? I have seen a lot of 9 week programs, if I went two 8weeks I could use the next two weeks to ease myself into working out, but do you think 8 weeks is enough time? Any advice would be a huge help.
