Well I just can't seem to figure out these little twinges in my body and it's becoming extremely frustrating. I feel like I have an IT Band injury one minute then the next minute I feel like I can go out and knock out some miles. I am driving myself crazy here (my fiance too LOL). The hard part for me is that I have always felt that my body was a machine capable of knocking out large number of miles per week if I needed it to, and now I feel like my body is letting me down. Based on my fiance's suggestions, I really need to maintenance my body when I am not running. Ice my joins, roll my muscles and tendons, and anything else I can do to keep myself running. If you have any other suggestion please let me know, I'm willing to try anything at this point.
Have you ever injured your IT Band? What do you do pre- and post- training to keep yourself from getting injured?
Plan has me biking a few miles, lets see if I can get out there tonight.
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
