I got to week 6 run 1 and stopped due to a case of knee pain (runner's knee) in my left knee. I have been resting, icing, compressing, elevating and a bit of stretching and have now gotten back to about 95% better I think. I plan to go and get a gait analysis done in a few days for some new trainers, and then start up running again. By that point it will be just over 2 weeks' rest. I am trying to figure out where to start back up again. I dont want to overdo it, but I dont want to get too behind as I am on track to run the Bupa 10,000 at the end of May. I am thinking of doing week 5 run2, then doing week 6 run 1, and continuing from there.
Does anyone have any general advice on (1) how far back I should be going after 2 weeks' rest and (2) should I do anything else before starting to run again or am I ok to just start running again?
