Illness and training

  • Posted:
    Hi,I am doing the greater Manchester marathon and I was due to up my long runs from 10 miles to 12 miles but I haven't ran all week as I have the worst chest infection,so no 12 miles for me on Sunday.
    I'm just thinking how do I pick training up when I'm well again and how will this affect my marathon ?
    All advice is welcome,thanks

    Chest infection is nothing to play with, so please take care of it first. Infecting your heart muscle would be the worst outcome when training ill. When you are well again, start slowly and see how your body reacts. Training schedules are made with assumption you are healthy. When things change, your plan must change too.
