      I,m so sorry to hear this Sugar, The only thing i would say is "listen to what your body,s telling you" it will tell you whether to run the race or not, and remember, you don,t have to make the decision whether to run, until the minute you cross the start line! ((Hugs))

      Pretty much what everybody else said, Sug. Give your body time to recover, as 26.2 is not something easy for most of us. In the meantime, you can bike, swim, and even walk / power-walk.

      I wouldn't try to do more than 4 until 2 weeks after the marathon and even then 10 seems on the high end. Think about all the training you already have built up and simply run to maintain that!

      This is my biggest deterrent to swimming. With my current schedule the only times I can hit our 4 lane pool, it's crowded. Excellent choice of taper workouts today!
