    Hi Gary, Just watched the video on recovery strategies and just wanted to say I think it was great! I noted EVERYTHING! I was a yoga student 2 years ago before a broken foot and I just stopped going (twice weekly). I am now running Boston in 4 weeks and a sore hip has just started to get in the way of training. I KNOW yoga would have spared me but now I think it is too late. I have been training since Jan 08 (started from scratch) and wanted to do a marathon before I turn 50. All on track (hoping just to finish but secretly hope it is around 5 hours too) until the hip thing. Any ideas on whether or not a great big rest and recovery will help and do you think I can still do Boston. Pretty keen to be pain free on the day!
