Good run, no IT band issues! This run just felt hard...I think I started a little too fast. But hard runs are great for building endurance! And I'm thankful when my body cooperates and feels good!
The physical therapist said he can tell my IT band is doing way better. It's just not 100% so it still can get inflamed like it did during Saturday's run. But he doesn't think there will be any problem getting me healthy by race day. Also, the sore spot on the bottom of my foot is a bone bruise. They take about six weeks to heal. It's been four weeks, so in a couple of weeks I'll probably be barefoot-ready again...when I occasionally get a day warm enough for it!
