I had been steadily building up my mileage for London on 24 April. I was up to my highest distance weeks with long runs in the late teens of mileage, then i got sick, and that has turned into a chest infection. The doc has given me some antibiotics to take over the next week, and says that should clear it up (she said there should be no probs with taking part in the race, as long as i feel ok).
That will leave me with less than two weeks until race day and around three and a half/four weeks off training up until that point. What advice would anyone give for the limited time i have left to train, providing that i am better? Also, is there anything i can do to help (non-running) while i am still recovering from the infection?
I had been aiming for around 3hr 50, but that may is obviously out the window now.
Any advice gratefully received!
