The Return

After touring the world with my rock band, The Iliotibials...

It's been 2 weeks since my last run. I spent most of the first week limping around and riding elevators. I finally caved and saw the doctor, which turned out to be a good thing. He was able to diagnose what was wrong (Iliotibial Band Syndrome) and show me what to do to help it get better (stretch). I'm supposed to ease back into running, so I only went about 1.25 miles today (and it was an agonizingly slow pace). It was starting to hurt at that point, so instead of running through it, I just walked.

The Doc also suggested biking so I could keep my fitness level up until I'm ready to fully return to training. It felt good to run again, but I need to be careful. Marathon training starts in 3 weeks, so I don't need any more injuries.
