I’m supposed to be running a marathon this Sunday in Ottawa.
A couple of weeks ago I pulled a lower abdominal muscle. (probably lack of stretching) Now I’m not sure if I should do the run.
I’ve been really laying off the training for the past little while but as soon as I get a long run in it starts to hurt again.
If I do run for fun and go slow I fear the competitive side of me is going to take over and I’ll push too hard. On the other hand I’ve been training for a long time and love participating in the Ottawa Marathon.
What would you do?
