Hi everyone, ive been training for Edinburgh on 26th May but sprained my ankle in the garde a couple of weeks ago.....its not completely healed and too risky so im going to sign up for Dublin instead. Will be my 2nd marathon and hoping for 3.45. Did about 5 long runs last couple of months 2 x18 2x 20 and a 23 so hoping i wont lose too much fitness and will try and maintain until October!!!!
Will be looking for a hotel for 2 nights and flights from Glasgow!!
Sounds like everyone doing well!! Ive been out for 2 weeks with the ankle sprain but doing cross training at the gym and swimming. Im ever hopeful though that i will run.....going to start gently tomorrow all going well (on treadmill) and figure out a plan for next 3 weeks....shorter taper for sure.
Did a 12 mile run then i was in my garden and went over on it foot totally swollen couldnt walk went to hospital got it x rayed they confirmed a sprain. Its black and blue but i can walk on it okay now been using RICE and im going to see my sports therapist tomorrow and start cross training tomorrow night see how it goes. Fingers crossed I can get back to running soon. Ive already done 1x18....2x20 and and 23 long run was hoping to get another couple in but will have to wait and see what happens!!!! Bloody typical!!
