When practicing isn’t possible

Yesterday, I got ill and missed practice, and with 3 weeks until my grade 8 exam, it’s not good to miss to much practice. To help me not lose any ground, I did a few things.
I took the e flat minor arpeggio and imagined myself playing it in my mind. Not just the notes in my head, but the physical act of playing the notes, the stretch of the fingers, every thing I could. Also, I played the Bach fugue extremely slowly in my mind, and used my fingers to tap rhythms for the hard parts.
I have also discovered that you should move your hand to the next note not before you play the note, but as you are playing it. Not sure how to explain this yet, but it has helped my with accuracy.
