So your plan after 3 months of drifting along with knee problems and not doing much training is to .... drift along with knee problems and not do too much training. Well it might work. We'll see.
Here is my prediction of how this will play out.
February - Maintain fitness. Knee still a slight problem.
March - Knee still a bit of a problem so going to continue maintaining program, see how it goes.
April - Knee slightly better. Going to do a 20 mile run on Saturday even though the first Ive been is 10 miles in the last few months since I need to get prepared for the Lakeland 100.
May - Knee playing up again with increased training. Might take a week off, see how it goes.
June - Behind schedule on training, knee OK will try to push a bit more this month for training. But not too much as don't want to damage anything before race.
July - Taper time. Haven't done as much training as I would hope but the tapering will give my body a last minute chance to try and repair itself.
July 24th - Race day. 20 miles in, couldn't tolerate knee pain anymore, caught by sweeper, Im out.
You never know, you might prove me wrong ... but I doubt it. Have a look at Peronel's post. You seem completely unaware that these races are 'proper' races. You can't just play at them. This isn't even like walking around a flat park for 100 miles. This will be a constant up and down, push like hell run. Here is a quote from the Lakeland 100 site.
" The climb, descent, rugged terrain, darkness and tricky navigation generally ensure a 50-60% failure rate over the 100 mile course"
So more than half the people fail. And yet you're going to do it even though you've been the first person out in each of your 100 mile runs?
You know Im not saying this to be nasty. This is me shaking you, trying to make you see sense. You will fail in the Lakeland 100.
Posted by me back in January on this very thread. Quite the foresight I have.
