Hi can someone with experience in running Marathons/sports injury please help? I am on week 8 of a 20 week plan with 3 runs and cross training. Had a minor medial foot injury which has lead to compensation in the other leg resulting in LCL. I can't run on the leg without it giving way at the moment. Yes I need to rest but is it feasible to still do the marathon as I can't run for say 3 weeks which will take me up on week 12 of 20? I am on a 2 hr (13 miles) long run at the moment and have a very good standard of fitness. I will still be able to swim, aqua jog and bike.
