I’m sitting at my desk right now and my knee is aching. This is not cute.
I think I have to forgo my long run tomorrow. I don’t want to, but I’m scared that if I don’t it’s really going to hurt Saturday afternoon, and make my 5k walk un-fun.
What to do. What to do. Maybe I can ice it tonight, and shorten my run from 8 to 6? Ugh.
I’m still thinking about getting a sports massage. It’s almost 3 weeks since my half, and while I’ve been running I haven’t been running a whole lot, and I’ve kept the miles down.
Is an IT band something that can heal it self? Does it just magically un-tighten? Foam rolling seems pointless. I mean, I can’t do it for long enough for it to make a difference. I need someone else to inflict the pain and Chris doesn’t count.
