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 suffer from tendonitis in both legs the moment I get to about 10k. What am I doing wrong and are there any supplements that I can take to aid recovery and strengthen tendons?

The doctor told me I have bursitis of the gluteus and said it would clear up in a couple of weeks. I am frustrated because I can not run. Is there anything in the meantime to speed up the recovery, it is nearly two weeks with the injury but no improvement.
