I have an injury, but I am still determined to run VLM tommorow. If you have run a marathon before with an injury I just need reassurance and advice on how you got through it?
My training has been smooth running, so I am already gutted that this has happened so close to the day. I have had been told its peroneal tendinitis, and I will be using KT tape and painkillers.
Defer. You won't do yourself justice and risk putting yourself out of action for far longer.
Be VERY careful if you are intending to use painkillers containing ibuprofen/ nurofen- these drugs are excellent anti-inflammatories, but can knacker your kidneys if you also get dehydrated ( which is almost inevitable). OK to take them tonight, and after the race, once you've started pee-ing again, but stick to paracetamol during the race itself. You need to figure out what caused the trouble ? new shoes? limping with another injury?. If you can identify a cause , and avoid it, you might get away with it, but it is risky. Walk-run may help.
Hi. If you ran hope you did well. If you deferred I hope you get fit again soon. I've been out of action through injury since August so understand how tough this is.
