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

Got something to say?
