Hi Warbs I often get heavy lower legs when I'm training and my fizzio says that (assuming you don't have any injuries!) it is purely volume of running and lactic acid in your legs, he recommends ice baths after every run if poss or at least after long runs.
Hope that helps!
If it really was 'flu (and in fact it hardly ever is) then you're going to struggle.
Jog a mile or so on the morning of the race, then go with how you feel
