Hi, I have a pain up the side of my ankle and then into my shin. I have been told its shin splints by a Physio....she said I should rest & lessen my taper even more (I was sheduled for 15 miles this weekend just gone but did 12)
My concern is losing my fitness levels before the big day if I dont do anymore running? Its also my first Marathon so I have newbie nerves as it is, so not running just makes it worse
Ive got a 20miler this weekend & wondered if anyone could suggest something I could eat that wont give me a quick burst and then make me flag (jelly babies would?) but would keep off the hunger. I have a really fast metabolism so am really hungry & start to feel quite ill by 16-17 miles.
I already have 3-4 gels but they dont seem to do enough
