i would rsst up for a few days again and carry on as you were ........then just do some short slower runs when you start back.......
you have done the hard work......you have put your body through a lot building the miles up over a short period of time.......
hopefully all will be fine on the day.......
you could always go for a sports massage to try and loosen the tightness or massage the area yourself.......have a look on utube
Can offer no help but hope things sort themselves out and you get to run to your full potential on raceday
Andi - many thanks for your support!!
Great advice Chappers. Any more pearls to share?
Rhoddri, just as an aside, the following is interesting:
"Just back from 3 months out with a knee problem. (Tight Ilitobial band pulling the knee cap out of position - cured by lots of physio & pilates to correct the movemnet of the leg through the stride). Running again now & building up the length of the runs slowly but surely with no problems."Posted by Mr Chappers himself.
well done rhodri.........time to rest and recover now
