Talk about frustration. Decided earlier this year to have a 2nd go at a marathon. Had 2 months off shortly after deciding this due to plantar fasciitis. No problems with that since then.
Started running again about 5 months ago, taking it easy (have just built up to 45-50 min runs again) and alas my achilles are now playing up. The left one started a few days ago and the right one after yesterdays run. Have finally decided to stop being stupid and keep running, hoping it will go away by itself. So as of today its enforced rest. Have just read in my trusty RW/Pro Sport guide that in 6-8 weeks I may be able to start running again. Great news - not.
What happens to my marathon training now? How on earth am I going to be ready to start the hard training in January?
