Still have the last remnants of the cough. I agree -- I was planning on taking it easy until the cough is gone and I feel stronger. Must admit I hate speedwork so I'm very happy to leave that until I'm pretty much back to normal. emoticon

I had bronchitis last September. Do you still have a cough or are all the symptoms gone except for the fatigue? I agree with SB's advice, but I would recommend that you not do speedwork (the 800s) if you still have a cough. In fact, I didn't resume speedwork until my energy levels were back to normal. Rushing into high intensity training too soon can just delay full recovery.

Thanks so much! Those are EXCELLENT suggestions - I appreciate your covering all the components of the program. It's great having someone who understands what I'm doing. I'm used to having to explain it all -- this is terrific!

Any day above ground is a good day.

My first thought when reading your post was to just slow down....

Next long run day you could....

Walk the first several miles and then run-walk the remaining miles - keeping at or below Jeff's suggested training pace.

For your shorter runs....

These can be however you feel on that day for both distance and pace.

For the 800s....

Just drop back to a few less than whatever is next on your training plan.
Or, do the 800s but at race pace rather than the suggested speed pace.

****

Really.... it all goes by feel and recovering from that old bronchitis.

Hope this helps and you feel much better soon.
You have lots of time yet....

Hi - SO glad to have found this forum!!!! I'm training for the Disney Princess Half in late Feb. - I'm using the time goal program to see if I can speed up a bit ("speed" being a relative term - I am a definite penguin). I came down with a nasty bronchitis over the holidays; it's left me far weaker than I expected, and I'm figuring I'm going to wind up about 3 weeks behind in my training program. My last long run was 13 miles, about 3 weeks ago. My question is where do I pick up in my training? I was planning on doing a few 45 minute easy runs to see where I am, then picking up where I left off in my training. I'll wind up not having run as far in the long runs as the program includes, but I will wind up running more than the race distance.

Any ideas or suggestions on how to restart my training would be very appreciated!

Happy New Year to all.

Any day above ground is a good day.
