I can't run on my toes, I get shin splints. As far as the other stuff, at this moment it's too experimental for someone in my situation right now. Besides, I can't afford to re-catch pneumonia right before the PT test by running outside and sweating outside. I'll save that for the test and hell I might even be able to do it at the sports center indoor track. I wonder if that would be a better idea, the air is dry though I hear.
