I graduated the C25k programme in July this year and was loving my new running hobby, but then went on holiday and promptly fell over injuring my knee and twisting my ankle! Doh! Literally just after graduating!!
I thought I would give myself a decent break to heal up (about 3 months all be told with holidays and what not) but I've just started running again tonight.
Obviously my fitness levels seem to have taken a nosedive and I'm nervous about doing too much too soon so I've opted to start at the beginning and redo the whole of C25k from week 1.
Is this the right thing to do? In my head I still think I can run for 30 mins non stop but my body is telling me other things! Any advice from people who have taken a break and then picked things back up? Should I do all the runs to be on the safe side? 9 weeks seems like an eternity at the moment but I know it will soon pass. I've set myself a target of getting to the end by Christmas which is just about do-able!!
