Here's where I need someone's advice:
As of right now, I only have 6 more long runs before the marathon. According to my training plan, here are the distances: 12, 18, 16, 20, 12, 8, Marathon. The 12 is out for this weekend, leaving me now with only 5 more long runs. During the week, I'm running 3 times a week. At max, I planned 15 miles total during the week. With this setback, I'm going to need to tweak my schedule. I'm aware of the importance of the 20 miler and tapering. I'm determined to run this marathon, but I'm not so stubborn where I'm not ruling out running the Half.
All pieces of advice are more than welcome at this point.
**Editor's Note: Here's a thought: Could this injury be due to the fact that the shoes I ran in had a grand total of 12 miles on them before I ran the 15 miler?
