Subject: Getting Back To It After Patellar Tendonitis.

I had severe pain in late October simply from overuse of running (mileage sky-rocketed after joining XC team).  I was diagnosed with patellar tendonitis and just finished four weeks of physical therapy for it.  The therapist told me as long as I keep doing the exercises/stretches and ease back into it, I should be good with running and pain-free.

I probably should have asked more in detail this question, but, what's ease back into it??  My usual running routine is 35-45-55 miles per week on 6 runs, then a 28 mile recovery week.  Would it be logical to do a 6 week buildup of 17-19-22-27-33-35 (just put it together on paper)?  Could it take less time or should it be more time?

Just looking for some opinions from any of you who had a similar injury

I was really careful with my patella injury and went extremely slow with it. Started running in the pool for a couple weeks and gradually worked my way back.

The doctor says not to run again. Ever. Needless to say, I’m not taking this very well. Can I recover from this? Where should I go from here?

Should I be working on getting faster at running by doing the longer distances and working up slowly over time or run faster for shorter distances now?

Frequently it is possible to continue to train despite an injury, but it can be difficult to know what injuries you can safely train through and how to train without doing more harm.

Soon after I got married, I decided I needed to get motivated to work out and focus on getting back into shape. I could barely jog a quarter-mile without needing a walk break.

My symptoms have been present off and on for almost two years. Is this a surgical problem, or should I just keep managing it for as long as I can?

Why is it so hard to start over after an extended leave from the sport. When it comes to training we can't live in our glory days!
