Do you think it's bad to not run for 4 whole days before a marathon? I ran last night and it wasn't good and then woke up this morning with lots of old pains i was having, plus some new knee pain....all in the same leg. Anyhow, I just finished my massage and I feel like a new person. I have some ridiculously huge knot in my quad that Mike has never really felt anything like it. I'm like wtf really? And I just saw him last monday and it wasn't there then! I haven't been doing anything crazy during this "taper" so where did it come from?
Anyways, I feel so much better and literally pain free after the massage...but he did say he wouldn't run anymore before the race....I just feel so strange not running at all for 4 whole days before... :( What do you guys think? Any of you had to do anything like that and still managed to have a great race? Looks like maybe i'll go for some easy swimming tonight and tomorrow night and that'll be it till race day.
