I have full marathon in 16days. I did the longest run last sunday following nice and easy recovery run. Then i suddely became ill, and haven't run for 5 days. I'm still feeling prettty fragile, so will not run for at least a day or two. What happens to my fitness after being ill? I 've been running 5,6 days a week until now, so i'm little worried that part of what i achieved during training will be lost?
No, no, i did 18 and 20 already, what i was saying was that i should have tried hyperspeed and newton to see how they feel during long runs. Rather than wearing the same shoes which gave me pain. Maybe runs-with-dogs is right in saying hyperspeed and my feet don't get on over certain distance.
