Sore foot - 3 weeks before the Cambs Marathon
It's three weeks you should be starting to taper by now, so rest ice, and more rest. If you can do a few gentle runs then great, but you have built up the fitness, you need to do nowhere near as much to maintain it, if you can't run maybe a bit of cycling, or gym work, , but if all else fails, just rest it for the three weeks and see how the marathon goes.
Frankly look on it as a way of enforcing your taper, you will be so fresh come marathon day.
also if you can afford it see a physio.
I would say don't attempt to run a marathon with a suspect injury.
