I had great energy and was making great time, but about 2 1/2 miles in my IT band was getting achy. Why? Because a couple of times lately I've run through the pain, and I SHOULDN'T HAVE. So I've learned my lesson. I walked the rest of the way.
I hate that this is an issue again, but at least I've learned that I have to be willing to stop when it STARTS hurting instead of trying to run through it. Hopefully I'll get past it (again!) soon.
I'm trying to be more consistent with my strength training so that I can get my legs & core stronger, which should help. And of course I'm rollin', rollin', rollin'.
