Hi Lastplace - im in exactly the same predicament as you - im now only 3 weeks away and the longest I had run before the ITBS was 16 miles. Ive been working hard at the physio and podiatrist exercises and Im going to attempt an 18/20 next week - im not sure if this is a good idea. Im doing a 13 miler tomo to see what happens. Anyway im running the Amsterdam Marathon, my first on the 18th. Im so glad its going to be flat! Ill tell you how it goes!
Gym addict did you use a knee strap above the knee at all? If so any recommenations? And did you take anti-inflammatorys before the run?
