How quickly can you prepare for a marathon - I don't mean an all out attempt at smashing PB marathon, but a get you round in one piece attempt.
Reason for the question is that I have been pretty much out of running action for almost 4 months due to Plantar Fasciitis and today I have had a cortisone injection in my heel, I have my leg in plaster for a week and I'm hoping that this resolves my problems.
I am entered in the New York Marathon in November and it is all paid for - flights/accomodation/race entry etc and as you can imagine this does not run cheap.
I have 99% resigned myself to having a hols and watching the race, but is there anyone out there that thinks there is still time to get ready to get round.
I have been cycling and swimming during the non-running period and my general fitness is ok.
New York Marathon is7th November.
I ran this years VLM in 3:18 but would not even dream of anything within an hour of that time - in fact walk/run is certainly an option.
any comments welcome.
