Marathon training following injury Molly 11/6/09 3:14:04 PM ET
I had surgery on Monday to repair my hip joint (labral debridement, CAM impingement and synovitis). I will be on crutches for 6 weeks. I don't know when I will be allowed to run again, but I am hoping that early january.
I was planning on running the Flying Pig marathon in early May. Since I have not been seriously training since the end of September, if I pick up running in late December/early January, and follow a training program designed by my running group, is that enough time to train. It is not my first marathon (it would be my 5th)
