At the start of the year I booked a place on the greater Manchester marathon. The first three weeks of training went well then I was hit with illiotibial band syndrome. This stopped me running for two weeks. I started back running and the ITB problem was still present, so I decided to give it another three weeks rest as well as seeing a doctor. This pretty much ended running the marathon prospects.
While I've not been running I've been stretching the ITB, foam rolling and doing strengthening exercises in the gym.
Now I've started running again, managing a 6k and a 10k run without any ITB pain. The marathon is two weeks this Sunday away. If in the run up to the marathon I suffer no ITB pain, should I run it?
