I was about to do Wk6 Run3 on Tuesday, then I got an upset stomach so had to put it off. Then I had to travel back to the UK from the south of France and had a nightmare journey with the car breaking down 150k from the coast and really awful service from the insurance company. I got back yesterday (2 days to do the final few miles) and have now come down with something I'm really upset. I don't want to be out of action for so long that I have to repeat any of the stages, I have gone through the course without a hitch so far. I had a week's gap between week 5 & 6 and did the first 2 runs of week 6 without a hitch.
I can't even get upstairs at the moment with weak legs and my throat is swollen so I think I would collapse if I went out now. How long can I go without having to go back and repeat a stage or do I just launch into week 6 R3 when I feel better?
I'm 51 and 2 stone overweight, but, as I mentioned, I've not had any problems with the course so far.
