I was scheduled to run a marathon September 19, and followed the 80/20 pace based marathon plan. Unfortunately, 10 days before the race I tested positive for Covid and was unable to run.
I am trying to run another race on October 25, but I am not sure how to go about how to train these last few weeks or what distances I should be running this weekend or next before I have to taper again.
I also missed out on about 2 weeks running, after I got sick, and restarted this week.
Please let me know your recommendations, I really want to run this race!
Proceed with extreme caution, following expert guidelines (below). Many runners have messed up their bodies royally by trying to come back from covid too quickly. This is one case when you can’t really trust how you feel.
