IT band progress continues.
Riding my bike is almost totally pain-free (perhaps 'discomfort-free' is more accurate these days) now and I upped my running distance a little and survived that as well.
I took it nice and easy at the Fleet Feet Sports Tuesday night run and it was the right call. I'm also lacking in fitness so it was about all I could do. I an still feel my left IT band but it's more of a dull ache now instead of a sharp pain and it does not last meaning the discomfort passes pretty quickly. I was also able to run down E Galer albeit at a super moderate pace. Still, that's also an improvement.
Amazing the difference one minute per mile makes in terms of effort.
