I'm running a marathon a week Saturday. Due to domestic circumstances, I've had a pretty rubbish training regime (husband breaking hip and what with children and work, there's only so much you can do). I did a 17.5 LSR 2.5 weeks ago, had to miss the following LSR and in my panic, after speaking to a friend who does not believe in tapering, ran a very hilly 20 mile on bank holiday monday. All my long runs are hilly. My knees are playing up (no change there) but my ankles unusually are painful. I'm icing periodically and given myself an extra rest day today. I've spent some quality time with RW forums on tapering tonight but wondering as I've been stupid enough to run more than I should have, what should I run in the next week. I know I should do some runs. I've given up the idea of an 18miler this weekend as suggested by unbelieving friend! Second marathon after slow marathon 5 years ago as a complete beginner and was aiming for significant time improvement given where I am generally in my running now so irritated at where I find myself now. So help to avoid injury and run the best I can, given my circumstances, would be helpful.. Really I have no idea at this stage what to do. V Long runs with hills c9.5-10m miles. I await the wisdom of RW forum.
