Common fear - all you can do now is mess up your chances of getting to the start line. It can take 2 - 3 weeks for the effects of training to kick in so any training you do now will help your fitness for after the race which is when you should be eating cake and drinking beer. For now I would stick with pasta and potatoes and not get dehydrated.
You'll be absolutely fine - honest.
Absolutely - I agree completely.
Just that I've tried the cakes and beer before the marathon tactic and (bitter voice of experience) had a crap run in the marathon!
