I have been having knee problems which turned out to be back problems, so my physio looked at my gait (whole body). I was basically running with too slow a cadence and swinging my hips too much as a result. So.....she has me using a metronome and running intervals and only short distances to start, up to 3k. (Plus core exercises).
The thing is, I'm now SO SLOW! I'm knackered too, and it's somewhat disheartening! Has anyone else experienced this? I suppose I'm relearning to run but I'm wondering if I'll get back to speed? And if so, how long it's likely to take?
It should, theoretically be more efficient and I should be faster but it certainly isn't at the moment, but if I want to keep running this is the only way forward that I can see (I could barely walk after some of my runs before).
Will I just have to accept that I'm slower now or do you think things will improve? :/
