So as it says above went to complete my last LSR before beginning the taper down to my first Edinburgh Marathon and disaster struck... 18 miles in and my foot is in agony done a bit self diagnosis last night online and it could be a stress fracture of the metatarsal (I feel like a footballer) estimated recover time is 6 weeks.... It's 4 weeks till the marathon... So the question I have is will I be ok to cross train (cycle) to keep ticking over or do I keep trying to test the injury every weekend ?? And what's everyone's thoughts on Ibuprofin to get me through the run I've read some mixed reviews and ive had no side effects when I've taken in the past!!!!!!!! HELP PLEASE I down want 6 months worth of training to go to waste !!!!!
