I made it 36 weeks without pain. On Sunday, something happened to my right leg. I've shut things down since then but it's still sore when I walk and it just doesn't feel right. From what I've read, it sounds like Iliotibial band syndrome.
This has me totally bummed. I've got a great running schedule in place but now I've got an injury to deal with. I've made the decision to shut it down for a week, but should I be shutting it down longer? I'm guessing the answer to that question is "see a damn doctor!"
Here are the runs I fit in over the past seven days:
- Sunday - 17k run
