Hi I was due to run a trail marathon last week but went down with a very heavy cold which has forced me to have 10 days off. I was absolutley gutted. Six months of training down the swanee. Anyway, I had done 10 days of my two week taper, then I've had 10 days off sick. Today I managed a wheezy 2.5 miles of run 3 min/walk 30 secs. There is an alternative trail marathon next week (which I think is too soon) or one the week after (14 July). My plan , as long as I feel okay healthwise, is to gradually increase my running over the next week and then do a 10 miler the week before the marathon and then have a 6-7 day taper. I hope to reboot my fitness, build on the long run fitness I already have and, perhaps most importantly, rebuild my confidence. Does this seem like a good plan or lunacy? I want to make a decent stab at it not just end up walking the whole thing (although my original time goal was a modest 5 - 5.25 hours.) Any thoughts or advice? Thanks Jaja
