It's better to be safe than sorry. With your race 2mo away I would think you would give you injury time to heal. The more you push it the greater the chance of major damage. I looked at my log from 2yrs ago when I was getting ready for the Cleveland Marathon and about 2mo before the race I had a hamstring issue. I took off 4 days then came back the next week on a reduced workout. During the 4 days off I used our HS pool for deep water running. The time off and slow return ( about 2 weeks total) allowed me to get back up to pace in what I thought was a reasonable time. At the marathon I ended up qualifing for Boston. The rewards from the time off were well worth it. I hope everything heals and you get back into top form quickly. Ski
