I was told to let my fat pads rest and recover after running for six months as a weighty fat bloke and completing with Laura. After taking advice from my GP and a they said to rest until completely recovered and follow the RICE technique, I haven't run again since (two months ago). My knees feel a little sore but they and I are itching to get out again and try however with a lot of hesitancy. I'm about to undertake a fitness test in October for the forces and I need to get back into it but unsure how to approach it? I still have the Drs.words reiterating in my subconscious not to go back to early or you will do more damage to both knees.
