Help - how limit losses during a two week 'ban'

Help! Due to an infection I’m laid up in hospital for a few days on IV antibiotics.  No running or cycling for a “few weeks”!

Any advice on how I can limit running fitness loss during a two week period?  I’m a keen ultra running and was a week away from starting a sub 3hr marathon training plan!

    The only things you can do are stretching and getting well.

  • Thanks Ric, stretching is somthing new that I will try now.

  • You won't lose much fitness in 2 weeks. It may even help you. Just go easy on the food as you won't be burning it off.
  • Don't worry about it, just mind your diet, eat normally but minimize saturated fats and sugars.

    The rest will probably completly help you.

  • All sounding good.  Still in hospital so low fat food is not a problem!

    Thanks for the piece of mind
