So, it's been a few months since I last ran. I am a newbie who decided to try and join their energetic 10 year old in running. I only managed Week 1 and then I came down with a knee and ankle problem (misalignment) that has kept me on the injury couch. After a few expensive trips to the physio, purchasing a foam roller and doing knee exercises I feel ready to get back to trying this programme again.
I want to start in just over a week's time as that will coincide with the start of the new school year and I can focus on myself again.
My question is: what warm up exercises should I do before a run and how long should they last for?
I really do not want to get myself back into the position I found myself in last time where I could barely walk as this really did have a detrimental effect on my day to day life. I want to start with best practice this time so what should I do?
This is a great forum for advice and confidence boosts so I hope you can help.
