Hi there, I'm a bit of a plodder who's doing the London Marathon is a few weeks and am after a little advice. My training was going ok (just one week off to recover from runners knee), with me reaching 19 miles in about 3 hours. But, unfortunately, I was struck down with a bit of a cold last week and the weekend so missed my final long run of 20 miles yesterday. I'm now supposed to be beginning my taper but was wondering if I should try and squeeze in the final long run this Wednesday? I've completed 16, 18, 19 miles already, but I'm worried I have not reached the magic 20 miles. If I just pick up the plan now it will mean I won't have ran any real distance for two weeks - with next longish run of 13 miles this Sunday - and a four week taper which seems a long time. I don't want to do more harm than good, but I also don't want to lose my fitness I'm very confused about what to do next : / Thanks all.
