Run #41

Well, with this iliotibial band (IT band) bothering me, I have to run on flat surfaces, and stop when it hurts. It started hurting (suddenly, and sharply) at 1.6 miles. I stopped, stretched, and walked 6 minutes. I then ran 6 more minutes, and it was getting more achy, so I walked the rest of the way. I figure I ran just over 2 miles and walked almost a mile. I'll be really glad to get over this injury. It's one that can take awhile, but I'm consistently stretching & doing strengthening exercises, so I'm doing my part!

3.13 miles, 37:49, pace 12:04 per mile.

Too soon to tell if the stretching is really helping?

I'm so antsy to get back out and run but the sidewalks are still really icy and dangerous. I'm really hoping I can go tomorrow. I haven't run since last Wednesday. :(
