I didn't realise you were going for a full marathon. Sounds like you were improving so I hope your football injury doesn't knock you back.
My prep for Sunday - meh. Did some intervals last night in the rain, painful. I am already planning where to bail out of the HM early. I may end up doing 21km but ending at home rather than Greenwich.
But I'm feeling better about running in general now. So Hackney Half should be good.
