theres just a week left until the Cardiff Half Marathon (my 1s) and I am suffering with what I think is Runners Knee. Its fine when I run, just afterwards its painful and I find stairs and bending difficult. I was thinking this could be due to me always running on the right side of the road where it tapers off and is uneven as its only my right knee. From googing and a bit of checking out my runkeeper app I also noticed that at approx 450 miles - my trainers are in need of replacing too but its too late to do this now before next week.
I am way behind with the training plan but know I can run about 10.5 miles in 2hours so hoping the cheers and support and determination on the day will help me along the last 2 miles or so.
I'm not not going to run as can't get refunds on race place and hotel ect plus running for charity means lots of people have sponsored me and I don't want to let the NDCS down.
What I am asking for is advise on what to do this week. I know I should be tapering off but I am itching to run and don't want to lost the fitness I have spent months building up to and after 2 days rest my knee is now fine after being supported and iced. So do I carrying on running? Maybe Cross train or cycle until the big day? Please help!
