Haven’t ran for over three weeks


Good evening , I have not ran for at least three weeks due to back and knee problems, I will try and do a run tomorrow however I am not sure where to begin. My last run was week 6 run 1 which I completed it was tough but completed it with out stopping. Can anyone give me any advice please do I go back to week 5 or carry on where I finished . My knee problems are not due to running .

Go out picking up where you left off and see how you manage......, that is all any of us can ever do after a lay off.

Thank you


Hi, sorry to hear that you had to take a break from it. It will be four weeks this Wednesday since I ran last, due to bursitis below my left knee. I was only on Week 3, but I’m planning to go back to Week 2 and see how I go. It was so very painful and I really don’t want to risk overdoing it, so am going to start again very slowly! Good wishes for your restart!
