I now have a decision to make about the Macleay River Marathon in two weeks time. I still haven't entered, and will leave it a little longer. I figure that I need to taper anyway, and am hoping that my heel will improve with two days of walking, and careful running thereafter. I will also wear my Hoka shoes as much as possible in the hope that their extra cushioning hastens the healing process. My sense is that if I can get to the starting line of the marathon with almost no pain in the right heel, I will be able to make the distance and finish with dignity. That's the plan, anyway, and I'll enter the marathon later in the week if I feel significant improvement.
