Absolutely gutted, only managed 9 miles today before the achilles heel broke down, only 6 weeks to go till the London Marathon and despite intense physio and daily treatment it's not having it, nasty little injury it is bloody Achilles heel. Maybe time to make a decision I've been working hard to not have to, fed up aint the half of it.
Did it about 6 weeks ago after getting upto 12 mile runs and only managed a 10k last Monday and today 10 miles. It has got better but question is if I only manage 10 now how on earth can I get upto some amount to get me ready ie 18 miles say.
Familys booked hotels and train tickets booked and everything. Its a charity spot so cant defer.
Don't know if to try again next week see if I can do 2 miles more then this week like I jumped from last weeks 6 to 10 today. Last week it hurt enough to stop at 6, this week I got to 9. So my thinking is maybe next week it will let me get to 12 perhaps, then keep adding 2 miles a week and have a 2 week taper, my time last year was 5 hours 18 minutes as I was affected by the heat, I don't do heat well and got really badly sunburnt.
I'm gutted and not sure what to do.
