Without getting into many details I have a marathon abroad scheduled for 16 October this year. Since last July I have had 3 injuries plus a number of smaller issues with my biomechanics. I work closely with a chartered physio who prescribed me custom made orthotics in March, I ran in them happily and injury free until the beginning of July when due to them altering my posture I got myself adductor problem. Since then I have had plantar fasciitis injury in the right foot which has cleared itself and currently have stiff joints in my left side and foot with pain on the outside of my right foot. Overall in the last 6 weeks I did not do a lot of running dropping from 50-55 miles pw to about 20 but I kept my fitness up by gym and cycling sessions as well as short runs in between. I am by no means cured but I am getting better and starting to think that maybe I could attempt this marathon although I did not make any long runs since end of June. I am looking for advice as to how to train in the meantime, is there still time, is this too crazy an idea, what to concentrate on. I reckon I need to start long runs, will start Monday with a 10 miler and see how coping with that, any other ideas, it will be my first marathon so I'm not sure how to tackle things yet. Thanks for all advice.
