Not sure where to resume?

I haven't run for almost just over a week due to injury/soreness. I've been to see the Dr and got most of this sorted and been told I can try resuming, so long as it doesn't hurt to do so. I was doing the C25K and had just completed week 3 and done D1 of week 4 before having to stop. I was thinking that I'd restart at week 3 and repeat that whole week before continuing on with the program. Does this sound like an ok plan or a stupid idea? Any advice/suggestions welcome





Busy mum, but loving it

My blog - www.runningbeginners.net

- Every day I'm reminded that perfection doesn't exist, and to strive for perfection will only defeat you. I want to be better than I was today and not as good as I'll be tomorrow -

First race entered 4.5K on May 22nd - looking forward to it!

Currently doing C25K - W4D2 completed

    I'd resume with W3 again.





    2/27/11 - Started c25k at 6'2" 285lbs

    3/29/11 - W5D2 completed, weighed in at 270 lbs, after, 2 miles up next!

    4/18/11 - W8D1 completed, weighed in at 268, decided to run for 30 minutes and felt as if I could have just kept going and going

    4/20/11 - W8D2 completed, decided to just run the 3 miles and mission accomplished.

    1st 5k scheduled for Mother's Day May 8th, http://ba5k.com/ - Finished in 39m27s

    I think your plan sounds great.  If you find W3 is too much, you can always bump it down to W2, but I can't imagine you've lost that much with only a week off.

    Start back at WK 3 and take it slow and you should be fine! Good Luck

    A similar thing happened to me (except my "injury" was spring break) and I restarted week 3. It was easier the second time, so I only did two more week 3 sets before bumping up to week 4! Since you had an actual injury, be sure you don't push yourself beyond healing, even if you're eager to keep going. Best of luck!

    Maria has good advice, basically ease back into it and listen to your body.

    Anything doesn't feel right, back off so you don't re-injure yourself. I have gone through several injuries and this works.
