I started my marathon training in August last year and to be honest I should have chilled out a little. Was running London but have had to pull out as I damaged my adductor (small tear) and kept running (didnt know it was that bad).
I did a 22 miler (35 mpw) followed by a 13 step down the next week and slipped a couple of times so that either did it or aggrevated the issue. That was 2 weeks ago and I have another week of rest but have been cross training well. Long runs since feb are 16, 18, 19, 20 and 22.
Physio suggests i "could" go for edinburgh (I have a place) at end of May with 8 weeks to get back into something like a long run. I did so much training but know I have to build up again.
Any advice on if this sounds silly and maybe to aim for an autumn marathon instead. I was aiming for 3:45 but if adjust to just finishing my first marathon is this possible - on my calculations (and everything going well longest run of 16-18 max i reckon 3 weeks out)
Want to do it but want to enjoy it also. For the 8 weeks any ideas on long run build up i should try out? I think my physio is nuts when she thinks i can really just pick up my plan again as my first long run according to her would be 15. Maybe I just need to man up (as Nick Windsor would say ; ) )
