Yesterday I had written (not posted) a more insightful post. Little did I know when I was writing it that my IT band is irritated with me. After work I hit the streets for a 4-5 mile run with hills. Pain jolted up the side of my right leg at the first stride. I went a full mile before I decided rest would be best.
Needless to say, I’m going crazy, feel like I’m gaining 100 pounds, and to top it off, I have a sore throat. On the bright side, it is a recovery week, I only have 12 miles planned for this weekend, it shouldn’t be the end of the world if I have to miss it.
I’m doing all the injury care I can think of, rest, stretching, ice, ibuprofen, more stretching, rest awful rest, more stretching…
Wish me luck & quick recovery!!
