week off training
i have been training for stroud half following a training program for the last 8 weeks,due to illness i have taken a week off,will all my hard work been lost,i want to improve on my 1st half of 1.28.
You've probably lost less fitness than you think; brilliant time for your first half btw! Just be sure you've recovered from your illness properly, and ease back into your training for the first few runs.
I've just had 10 days off due to an eye injury. I'm hoping to do the Bath half but not until March next year. My first!
Before this injury I was up to 11 miles as my longest run. I cut back this run by 2 miles. My calves hurt for the first week but after that nothing and I'm back to where I was now.
Just one week off running you would probably lose hardly anything. Stick to the programme or go back just one week.
It's really infuriating and I was well depressed with having to have two weeks off. Same as you are i expect.
