Take care of the bronchitis. Running will still be there in 6 weeks.

Thanks all! I've been banned from leaving the house with this one, much less going for a run. Doc said up to SIX WEEKS before I can run again:( Hope he's wrong, but he's probably right - he's the one with the degree in medicine after all! Thanks for all your support - I don't actually have a specific race in mind, I'm just kinda doing it to prove to myself I can... Ill take a look closer to the time there's bound to be a marathon I can join somewhere in the country, and thankfully in Italy they don't tend to cost much or have particularly limited numbers.

Welcome to the group! Hope you feel better soon.

I have had bronchitis once - as my annual post-marathon illness (I always get sick within two weeks of running one). From what I've been told - if the cold is in your head, you're OK to run, but if it's in your lungs, you should hold off until you're better. Hopefully it won't take you too long. take care of yourself, and you will be running soon enough!

The Joy is in the Journey!

Hello and emoticon

Having (luckily) not had bronchitis, I can't tell you how long to take it easy, but judging from the experience of friends, it seems to really depend-for some folks it may be a week or so before they start feeling better, for others, it could be longer. Not very helpful, I know, but I think you really need to listen to your body, and rest up as long as you can force yourself to! You'll be back on your feet soon, and like Gail said, missing the first few days of training shouldn't set you back. Good luck! Are you training for a specific race?

No need to start marathon training before you feel well. The first few weeks of marathon training are not too intense, so it's not a big problem if you miss a few days.

welcome to the group.

Bronchitis is no fun at all. Feel better soon! When I had bronchitis last year, it took 3 weeks before it was all clear. Ugh.

Just rest up and get better. We all suffer set-backs, they're so frustrating. I hope you feel much better soon!

Welcome aboard! Rest and lots of fluids...I know not what you wanted hear.

I actually joined last week but came down with a chest infection on Monday. So frustrated, I wanted to start my marathon training this week, but I can't make it to the bathroom without wheezing, and as I discovered today cold air+bronchitis=NASTY, nearly ended up in A&E as I decided to try to go to work. Fool. So, feeling sorry for myself. Have put more cheery info in the 10things post, I just wanted to rant a bit here and see if anyone had any advice...
