So, I am quite new to running, got into it 6 months ago, and have been doing very well (surprising myself), been training quite intensly for three months as my first HM is coming up, did the course of the HM in 1:57 last saturday, BRILLIANT, now i can taper down and look toward carg loading, wooooppps! next day doing nothing much and a pain develops in my lower back, this is the following Saturday and I still have it. Its not major ( I can walk around, go to my work), but its just there, a niggle, a twinge and the hm is a week today, registration is a day before, I have eyes set on a full marathon in December and dont want to wreck my chances of that, but I had my heart set on doing both, trying everything to aid recovery, need some experienced advice, what would you do if it went altogeher, by, say tuesday wednesday? I am 33, and not looking to break records just run it if that helps, thanks in advance for any help
