I'm signed up to run my first marathon; Chester on 6th October (13 weeks Sunday). I've not really run for the past 6 weeks due to a ITB injury which has made my knee painful (perhaps done a 2 mile each week, but each time it has hurt). I've been to physio a few times, do stretching and foam rolling daily and I'm told I can start running again.
Before I was injured, I only got up to 6 miles, but was running 4 times a week (maybe 15 miles a week). Before that, I hadnt really run for 3 years or so!
Is it still possible for me to complete a marathon? Hoping to do a 4 mile this Sunday and then start increasing, but I have no idea of what is reasonable?
Feel like I should knock it on the head for fear of damaging my leg more (still niggles when walking downhill), but I really don't want to.
