IT Knee Pain - oh whoa with me :(
A few posts ago I mentioned that my PT gave me some exercises and stretches to do, of which I did only half-assed. And what did I get out of it? Half way thru one of my simple loop runs it got so bad that I had to actually walk, then run, then walk, blah blah blah. The IT Band does help, and I have found that after the run it actually seems to help out to leave it on until bed time. And as of last night am going to do the 4 exercises religiously for 2 weeks to see if it helps. Took tonite off, will try to go back to my short course tomorrow to see if there is any improvement.
I'm really kind of bummed as I was really hoping to do 100 miles this month, my first full month back running, after only starting again in mid-August.
Well if you have any IT experiences, please leave me COMMENTS and SUGGESTIONS.
Be well - Sank
