Illness during marathon training

Any advice would be welcome on this one!

I've been ill with a couple of virus type things for nearly two weeks and am getting massively concerned about getting my fitness back and training back on schedule for London marathon 6 weeks today! Thought I was better last week and set out for a 15 mile run but only managed 6. Feel very lethargic and like I'm losing my running mojo! How do I get back on track? Should have run 15 today, 16 next week, 18 the week after etc...Because of various injuries, I do half my training on cross trainer and just one other 6 m run per week.

Would be really grateful for any advice on this! Do I wait til I'm 80%/ 90% or 100% and what distance should I go for???? Thank you!
