I have trained for 4 months for the London Marathon, After my last long training run (22 Miles) 30/03/2013 i felt a dull ache and soreness in my left hamstring. I rested for a week and started the Blackpool Half a week later. As soon as i set off the pain down the back of my thigh was agony and i had to pull out. My physio says i have a strained bicep femoris which is causing nerve issues as well. I have been told i can no longer race but depending how i get on this week i could jog it round. I was on for a sub 4 and now feel gutted. How long do you think for a full recovery and would anybody risk doing the marathon or should i defer and concentrate on the other events i have planned for 2013. All advice would be appreciated. P.S i tried a slow jog on Saturday and it was still painful.
