I am doing the Berlin Marathon in 2 weeks time and I would be keen to get an opinion on how much fitness i would have lost due to not training over the past 3 weeks due to shin splints.
I had been hoping to do a 3.30 hr marathon but providing i can shake off the injury is this still possible?
The facts are:
I have plenty of miles in my legs having averaged 35 miles a week for the past 12 weeks and having completed 3 20 mile runs (the last being on the 27th of August).
I completed a 10 mile race in 70 mins on the 11th Aug and a 1 hr 36 half marathon on the 24th of August
Any views welcome?
