Just returned from a holiday to Majorca. Very very hot (38) so I figured it was best to try and run on the hotel treadmill instead of the street. first time running on the treadmill, and I thought I was doing ok considering there was no air con and it was boiling hot. I ran for 20 mins at 6 and realised this is very slow as I only covered 3km 😮.. Oh dear, but still I had kept going so was pleased until I got off and realised I have really hurt my knee. It is painful to bend now and trying to get up and down from the pool became almost impossible. I have researched and it appears ice and no running is the only option. I was on wk6 of couch to 5k and now feel I will really be set back. I am very over weight and realise that running when I'm this fat is bound to cause more damage. My question is : does running on a treadmill change your running gait which can lead to injury? I read something about hip and pelvis tilt causing runners knee? Shall I try to run a bit to keep it up? Any advice greatly received . Many thanks for reading xx
