Today was one of those days. Got up.. ate a good breakfast.
(cottage cheese with cinnamon)
Got my kids to school.
Went and stocked up on things and Sams Club.
Then headed out for a run. Was suppose to go 10 miles. My legs were tired from the 21 miles I did on Saturday. I kept telling myself go slow... it will be ok. At about mile 3 I could tell my IT band was tight. My knee was feeling some pressure. Stopped at mile 5 to have a Gu and stretch. Then right at mile 8 I had to stop at a light. As soon as I got the OK to cross my knee was so tight I had to hop across the street on one foot. It was so EMBARRASSING!! It was at a very busy intersection. Luckily I was very close to a gas station were I limped to and to wait for a ride. The rest of the day I spent on the foam roller.
I need some help! I will not let this get me. I need to figure out how to fix it so that I can start running pain free and have a good marathon. Any suggestions?? Please let me know what has worked for you!
