After week 5 I had Achilles' tendon problems . I took advice and didn't run for 1 week . I started week 6 but left 3 days between runs and did week 6 run 3 on Sunday , I really struggled with running for 25 minutes and must confess I had to walk for 1-2 minutes on 2 occasions Was planning on running on Tuesday but dreaded noro virus has struck. I know I won't be able to run until at least Saturday and probably best leaving it till Sunday. I'm not sure what to do should I go back to the start of week 6 again , has anyone else been in this position . I would welcome advice

First.. if you have had the NoroVirus...make sure you feel completely well.. and are back to normal
Then after all your issues, maybe it is an idea to just take Week 6 again slowly, and steadily and just use it as a return to running week..it will let you know if you are feeling okay and will give you confidence
Oh you poor thing you have been through the mill lately
Don't even think about running till you are 100% recovered from that nasty bug.
I'd say listen to OldFloss she's an expert.....start week 6 again very gently.
Good luck x
