I ended up taking a break from the programme due to injury. I had got to run 3/ week 3 and was really enjoying it but got overzealous and ended up with painful, swollen knees. Several weeks of physio later and Im now read to get going again. I've just treated myself to some new trainers, recommended after gait analysis too.
My problem is how to integrate the pretty strict instructions that my physio has given me with getting back onto the programme. I am at 7 minutes of 1 minute running and 1 minute walking on the treadmill. Physio says I need to do this twice weekly then increase to 8 mins and so on with 1 minute increases until I reach 15 minutes. He says that at that point I can change to a 10 minute continuous run and after that increase it by 10 percent each week. This is all good, but I want to be on the programme with the support of Mr Smooth! Im a bit lost trying to work out when to cross over and what stage to start at on the programme etc. Any ideas?
