I need help/motviation/advice...
It is only 6 weeks until my second marathon attempt - the Berlin marathon. I ran my 5th Half in June with mild shin splits, thinking they'd just go away on their own as usual BUT they didn't. And it seems I've done myself more damage. I've been seeing an osteo weekly and am waiting on specialist insoles to correct my feet which will prevent further injury but my worry is Berlin is going to be dire. My only aim was to run the whole way as my previous marathon I walked/jogged from 20 miles. My shin (and tendonitis of the upper foot/ankle) is getting better and I can manage 30 mins on the treadmill or beach without niggles now but I should be on around 26 miles a week.
I think I know the answer already - don't expect anything wonderful and it'l going to hurt!!
