Comrades Marathon training affected by piriformis injury

Welcome back to Ask Coach Parry. The question today is injury related and comes from Anzonia. She says that she developed a piriformis muscle injury. She started to train but had to stop because running is painful. Her January consisted of bay-to-bay and Redhill where she suffered.

Do you think she can still train for her first Comrades Marathon? She intends to start training again slowly from the beginning of February. Currently she is doing strength training the core and aqua jogging as well. What is the best advice? The left side is always a problem on that piriformis.
