One final long run or rest?

 

I fell a little behind in my training schedule because of tendinitis issues. I have only run one 17-miler. The marathon is June 1. Others are starting to taper down. I wanted to try to squeeze a 19-20 mile run in Saturday. Will two weeks be enough time to recover for the marathon?

    Welcome to active.com!

    I would recommend doing 12-14 this weekend unless you feel that you need to run a 20 miler for the sake of confidence.  At this point, it really is time to get into your taper.

    Good luck and happy running!
