    I’ve been reading through other posts to find my answer. Most answers dealt with individuals who had a few more weeks before their event. I have a marathon planned for 5/1. I was doing well on Marathon Level 1 before the illness..I have been off running for 2 weeks and will have 8 weeks left before the event to continue training. Any tips on adjustments as I return to training?

    Coaches can give a better answer, but I find myself in almost the exactly same situation.

    Two weeks after a minor surgery and “finally” off antibiotics I resumed training. Lost fitness of course, and surprisingly lost some weight and body fat, I resumed training. I chose to do the Walk/Run workouts a couple of days for the transition, and it seems to have worked.

    I don’t plan to return to my original race schedule, but I am ready to rebuild with some endurance workouts next week. Instead of my original 1/2 Marathon I have registered for a 10K two weeks later, in late April…

    @Charles,

    Thanks so much for sharing your experience. That helps give me some hope. 😁

    I’m nursing a mild calf strain while training for a 50k on 5/21. I’ve been wondering the same thing!
