Starting the C25k but sore knees

HI

I have tried to start running using the C25k plan a couple of times this year.  In the summer I stupidly skipped a few weeks and overdid it and sprained the ligament on the inside of my right knee, now 4 months later I have started again from the beginning (Week 1) and am noticing slight soreness in the same place on my other knee(both very slightly during and after).    I have been icing my knees after every run so far (all 2 of them)

I had a gait analysis and new shoes prior to the last attempt in the summer.  I am not overweight and my knees have never been a problem before this year.

I have been trying to do some strength training exercises (wall squats and demi plies) on the days I haven't ran.

Just wondering if I should continue with the plan, stick on week 1 till the soreness recedes, just walk for a few weeks and continue with the strength training or any other suggestions.

I am determined to get back into running as I have always loved it so I don't really care how long it takes.

 

Thanks, Charlie
