  • I'm not surprised you didn't feel up to running after all that! Depending on how you feel when you get back to it, I might be inclined to do a week 3 run first, just to build confidence, then move on after that. There's no right or wrong answer though - it's what works for you (and the difficulty is of course that you don't know until you try it!)... :)

  • Wait until you are really better, otherwise the run will be very hard. Then I'd try w4

  • I have just had a week off with illness and went back and repeated W4 R3 to help with confidence. Today I have done W5R1 and had no problems. Hope you feel better soon but take it nice and slowly it's not a race.
