Looking at my mileage it looks like I am tapering off a few weeks early. But really I am having some problems with my IT band. Like right now, I have an awesome gangsta limp. Frustrating, but I keep reminding myself that when I BQ’d in Cleveland I had taken 2 weeks off running (around this same time), to have my wisdom teeth out (my face swelled like a chipmunk for an entire week and took 9 days before I could have solid foods again) and my longest run at that point was only 18 miles.
If I can get my IT band better that would be great but right now there will be a whole lot of resting, foam rolling and stretching. Elliptical doesn’t seem to bother that so I am doing that when I can.
Sunday: 7 miles around Boston
Tuesday: 5 Miles
Wednesday: 5 miles
Thursday: 50 mins on the elliptical
Friday: 50 mins on the elliptical
Total Mileage: 14 miles
I am still planning on running the 10 miler this weekend and I ran the Glass City Half marathon yesterday. Recap tomorrow 🙂
Anyone else having injuries while training? Kind of impossible not to.
