Hi all, I have not been able to run since august due to an impaction injury of the foot. I have been given the all clear to start running in 10 days time. But I want to ensure that I don't overdo it. The recent running world magazine has a good article,which I think I will follow. Anyone got any suggestions? I was running 20-30 miles per week b4 I got injured back at the beginning of august.
I found rest makes my pf worse. I reduce the number and intensity of my runs and run on softer ground where I can. Have you changed your running shoes? My pf just came back after 4 years, which coincided with the acquisition of some new running shoes.
The general rule of thumb is that you do your last long run 3 weeks before your marathon race. However I have seen especially on the ultra marathons programme that you do your long run 4 weeks prior and then a half marathon race the week after.
Any thoughts on that? As my local half marathon is 3 weeks before the Notts Marathon.
