Decision made. Thank you for all your advice, sorry I've caused such a debate. Im going to respect the distance and not run the marathon, if I can downgrade I will do. I do not want to risk any further injury and I'm so not fit enough now. I'm concentrating on London and hopefully I can do a respectable time rather than desperately trying to just finish it. Im completely going to change my training as I have been picking up injuries continually, achilles, torn calf etc. Thanks again.
Wise decision Lauraine. Doing the marathon in your state would have been stupidity.
At best you'd have probably crawled to a death march near the end, making it a miserable experience and at worst you'd have put yourself out for any length of time, dependent on how stupid/stubborn you decided to be on the day.
There's always another race. Any serious runner who cares about their future running health knows that.
i'd gently prepare for VLM if i were u
best wishes always
