people-running-clipart-RcA8K9RcL[1]So despite my IT band issues I decided to run another 20 minutes at the gym today as part of my brick.  Last week I hurt after running but not as much as the last time so I called that progress.  Today hopefully will be the next step.

The first 5 minutes or so of running had some clear dull pain shooting down my right leg with every stride.  As my body warmed up that went away.  I again kept my pace a slow and steady 6 MPH as at this point it’s all about just moving and has nothing to do with distance or speed.

Afterward I stretched for the second time, hoping once again to keep my day after discomfort levels at a more reasonable level.  We will see how successful I was 24 hours from now.
