I'm a relatively new runner and have been doing a 10k run every couple of days for the past couple of weeks in prep for a race on the 3rd of March.
However, after my past 2 runs I've been experiencing terrible pain in what (after some reasearch) I believe to be my piriformis.
I know it must be injured and will need to heal but I really don't want to lose fitness before my race and was wondering if anyone could give me a guideline of how much I can run on this sort of injury?
I've been doing specific stretched for the area as advised on a few websites and threads.
(On a side note - I'll be travelling to South America on the 20th of March and probably won't be able to do much running for more than a month so there's some guaranteed rest time if I can just get through to then)
