Hi all running my first half marathon in sheffield this year training was going good but ive just got a stinker of a cold and the sheffield lord mayors 10k coming up is it wise to cary on training or give it a break for a few days ( dont want my fitness to sufer )any advise plz

take a break for a few won't make much (any) difference to your fitness - but running through a stinker and making it worse could end up with you off running for a longer period.

Take the opportunity to do some extra stretching if you want to still feel virtuous :-)

Ditto what Heckenhocker said.

When you get back into training,and assuming you're following some sort of schedule, its probably worth stepping back a week or so to bring you back to where you are now.
