sw, not to worry, even a week's down time won't affect your fitness. You will actually gain a small amount as you recover from your training.

In 1964, Abebe Bikila( Olympic Marathon Champ-1960,1964) underwent an emergency appendectomy five weeks before the 1964 Games.

He won the Marathon in world record time, four minutes, eight seconds ahead of the second place finisher.
