I've just had five weeks off running due to a hideous hacking cough and a medical history (5 years with severe chronic fatigue in my twenties) which means I don't push through certain types of infections - I am now recovered and have the go-ahead from the doctor to start running again. During this period, I still kept walking for about 20 mins each day and did some sporadic yoga.
The question that I have is
I completed my first half marathon in September in 2hrs 16 and was running regularly including hills and 7/8 mile runs through October.
I was planning to do a Wokingham half marathon on 8/02 - is this feasible or should I pull out. I was hoping to try for 2 hours based on doing a proper schedule and being assured it was flat.
I also have a place in the London marathon - is this still feasible? I have a place at Reading half as well so will definitely aim for that.
