I have started having intermittent knee pain in both knees. I injured the left knee doing heavy weights a couple of years ago and it can be fairly erratic but now for some unknown reason the right knee has decided to twinge and strain.
I started with three sessions a week, went up to four when I started a training program and now enjoying it so much I am up to five and really loathe to take any rest days. Currently doing between 17-20 miles a week.
Now, unsurprisingly starting to feel unwell!
Would anyone mind telling me how quickly I can add sessions. One a week, one every two weeks?
I have been doing a speedwork and have been feeling great (they are very addictive!) but can you do too much? How careful do you have to be with slow, fast run mix?
Pleased that someone is discussing these things considering all the weightloss articles that are on this site!!!
I refuse to believe that you can't get over it. It is a long process of discovery (naff I know sorry) and the mistake is to put a time line on it all. It is about being brave enough to accept yourself and then having the dedication to recover (I think the Penguin's article is also relevant for EDs).
I have read every book going and while they all have something to contribute at the end of the day you need to learn to trust yourself and your body.
It does take a long time but you can do it, just don't give up on yourselves please.
