Long story short, signed up to marathon end of June 2 weeks ago. Furthest i have run in my long run is 15 miles without any dramas and felt really strong doing it and easily would have pushed over 20 miles. 2 days later I got a foot injury Doctor said rest a week then try running. Waited a week went running after a mile and half it flared up in my foot. It's a little sore but no way near as bad as it was to begin with. So I am thinking another week off running and doing a bit of cycling instead. Once I have a week off I have 6-7 weeks to train for a marathon essentially. Can it be done?
Near to me their is a 20miler trail race on the 2nd of June. Should I use this to guage where I am at. I'm not expecting to break world record I just need to finish it as I stupidly agreed to do it for somebody I know who lost their child to cancer, raising money for the hospice that looked after them.
Just need a little geeing up and some positive responses as I get so down when I cant run
