Just after a little advice really.
Ive trained hard for the Liverpool marathon on Sunday and got up to averaging 200+ miles per month.
Did a 10 miler on Thursday last week and got painful twinges in my knee. Ran a 4 mile on Saturday, took it easy but right at the end - more twinges.
Have rested it since with ibruprofen gel and plenty of ice.
Realistically is there any chance of it healing by Sunday?
take it easy and turn up for the start anyway.
You wont know if its just tension / pre race jitters / passing twinge or a real problem based on a 4 miler .
Keep icing and turn up at the start anyway. you woul dbe surprised how mant niggles vanish once the race starts!
