Toronto Mike

Listen to the Bass Go BOOM


Eight days ago, I pulled up lame during a 17k run.  My IT band was giving me fits and I've now missed four scheduled runs in a row.  Tomorrow, I'm planning on testing things out with an easy 6k.

I've really missed it.  For 37 weeks I got out for at least three runs a week, and then, all of a sudden, nothing.  You don't realize how much you enjoy something until you cut it out.  I miss the feeling of accomplishment, the comradery, the health benefits and the sense I was slowing building toward an ultimate goal.  I'm looking forward to trying things out tomorrow but if the pain returns I'm prepared to shut things down for a much longer period.  That would suck, but this IT band is a tricky bastard.

Just don't call it a comeback...
