4 miles. That’s ALL I got this week.
I took Monday off to rest up and when I ran Tuesday morning, my IT band seized up bad. It’s been years since I felt this kind of IT pain. I knew from experience to stop running and try to remember all the at-home things my physical therapist taught me. I am kicking myself because I know the formula for keeping my jacked up leg and spine happy: strength train with HEAVY weight to keep my butt and hamstrings strong. That IT band will find a way to make itself known when my strength training slacks off. I HAVE to get back to CrossFit. No choice.
