That sounds very frustrating for you! If you are still getting dizzy maybe you have some residual infection or a blockage? It might be worth getting that checked out - you don't want an injury through falling on top! Another runner posted some good advice on restarting. Go for a gentle run and time how far you get, then restart at that week of the programme. Remember, there is no rush; the programme and the forum will still be here! Good luck!
