I agree with CSTREAM. I would follow the 10% increase. Great job on your marathon!

Hmmm.. I think the 10% rule might be the way to go. It's easy to overlook-do when one is recovering from an injury. Miss far too easy to make it worse.

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

I haven't run more than 10 miles a week for the last 6 weeks because of knee issues. I haven't had any issues with it for a little while now, I've just been nervous to do too much. Do you think I should follow the 10% increase rule to get my weekly mileage back up? The knee issues arose after I completed a marathon, took a week off and jumped back into training and upped my miles too quickly. The second week after the marathon I was comfortably able to do 20 miles, it was the following week at 25 miles that the niggle started and the week after at 28 miles that it hurt and I started to rest.... I have no idea how much I should be able to try to run and I don't want to push it but I also want to get my miles back up so I can meet my goal for the year
