I have entered in the Dublin Marathon on the 28th of Oct (second time)  All was going according to plan, ran a half last week, got a new PB but  knew I had done some damage, rested up for a few days but as I was falling behind schedule went out as I felt I had to try get a least a long run in at the weekend - even if Slowly. Big mistake, could barely walk the next day - went to physio yesterday and I have quadricep muscle tear (which explains the swelling) told to Rest - my question is approximately how long will it take to heal up. I have another appointment on Thursday, Hopefully I will be in less pain by then.  I am falling way behind my schedule,  will I have time to catch up?
