Do you think I can retain my fitness if I have a couple of weeks off and still run the marathon?

Don’t panic and listen to the medical advice. In the meantime focus on what cross training you can do that will not aggravate your injuries. Cycling and swimming will keep you aerobically ticking over.

Two weeks will not make that much difference and the rest may freshen you up but it’s a good idea to introduce some cross training.

I get really sore calves when running, especially up hills and it really affects my running. I do stretch them but is there anything else I can do to help them? (I walked on my toes for 13 years which I think is the main cause)

I rolled my ankle 12 weeks ago and although it’s not painful at all to run, it hurts to stretch, am I ok to start marathon training?
