I know there are some seriously experienced runners on here and I need some of your opinions/advice, please.
Training has gone pretty well up to yesterday when I had to pull out of a half-marathon with a pretty bad achilles injury. It's seriously affecting my walking today so running is out of the question. Will get to see physio asap but suspect I will not be doing any serious running for a couple of weeks minimum.
I have been running 4 times a week since beginning February and at weekends have completed LSRs of 3x15, 2x18 and 1x20 plus a half-marathon PB. The 20 was run on 17 April - 5 weeks from Edinburgh. This will be my 8th marathon if I get there.
The question is if I can get my leg right how will the lack of running affect my fitness with no time left to do anything about it?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
