What is the best way to resume training program?

I'm about half way through an 18 week marathon training program. Everything has been going perfectly, but last weekend I was struck down with tendonitis on the top of my right foot, after finishing up a 32 mile week. I took 2 days off, did an 8 mile run with no pain, no issues. I then attempted a slow 15 mile run yesterday but after mile 5 the pain was too great.
