Background: I've entered a 69 mile ultramarathon in June. Training has been going well up until a month ago when I took a week off with a cold, then took another week off with the sinusitis that followed and then put my back out. That all healed, I went out for a short run and loved it. So I went out for a longer one, loved that too. The third time I had to walk home after 3 miles because my right knee would not bear weight.
Long story short, I've not really run in a month. The physio has given me a load of exercises to try and build up some weak muscles in my right leg, but cycling appears to be the only way I can do any cardio exercise right now.
Given the short time between now and the race (June the 22nd) is cycling my arse off and hoping that my knee gets better with the exercises in time going to be enough to keep me fit enough to attempt 69 miles, or should I just admit defeat and try and sell on my entry and hotels?
By the way, I tried MingTFU, but brufen is a bit lightweight for the pain.
