Bridget - are you freaking serious? Track on your list of priorities??!!! I do hope you get a responsible doctor who would not clear you at this time.

Apparently there is a risk of myocarditis, and you should undergo an echocardiogram and stress test before returning to training, at least anything harder than a walk.
If the doctor does not recommend and Echo and a thorough stress test, that dr clearing you is absolutely worthless.
Eduardo Rodriguez missed the 2020 baseball season because he was diagnosed with myocarditis after having covid. He's a healthy, young, professional athlete and he felt normal
when he got the diagnosis.
I am very aware that I won't be able to run right away, and that I need to be very careful about getting back into it all (my coach and I will be working together to get a schedule that works back into it), but I would quite like to go to practices and see/meet my teammates and coach. Having that kind of connection is something that I need after not seeing anyone face-to-face for almost two weeks.
Yeah, I think that's a pretty healthy attitude!
OK, a little relieved now that by track you did not mean actual track at this time.
Cheering from the side of the track - good plan.
And meanwhile we're all cheering for you to get totally healthy again. The running -- and the school stuff -- will be there when you're ready.
