    I injured my back today moving some furniture. I wasn’t able to complete my long run (I had 2 hours on my schedule) and I may not be running for a few more days depending on how long it takes for this to heal. I have 11 weeks left in my 50k plan before my race. I would love some advice for how to adjust my plan.

    One option is to chalk this long run up as a loss and just continue as planned, I guess. Another option I was thinking about is that I could just redo this week (including the long run) at the expense of one of the depletion run weeks. What are your thoughts?

    Thanks, in advance!

    Hi, I’m not a coach, but I would not loose any recovery or taper weeks as that is more likley to result in an injury. Especially if your back is recovering. Once you start running again I would take a few days to ramp up from where you were pre-injury to where you should be for your schedule.
    If the injury is still nagging I would see a sports physiotherapist. One session may make all the difference.
