For the past 4 weeks I've been back to running after 10weeks off due to shin splints injury. I've increased my Sunday runs from 2 mile to 4,6 and this Sunday I'm doing an 8 but my question is on a Tuesday I'm only running 2 miles as this is the mileage I was doing just as a test run for my shin but before injury I was running around 4 miles on a Tuesday do I have to continue to just run 2 miles on a Tuesday or can I go back to what I was doing before as 2 miles seems pointless but I'm already increasing weekly milage by 2 miles per week. Do I have to use the 10% rule or can I go back mid week runs to where I was before?

I'd take it slow to be sure you're fully healed, better than a recurrence of the injury, no?

Do you have a race target currently?

I've just checked you out ;-) and you've loads more experience than me, but for an experienced runner you can probably increase more quickly, just be very aware I guess.

Did you see a physio? What was their guidance?

Yes had a gait analysis and I've just had custom orthotics to wear in my shoes and was told I'm hyper flexible which can be the cause of my running injuries
