Best bit about a morning run through the park is you cut a path through the dew so I could "hold my line" for each park loop ... it was fab, fresh & invigorating.
I was having a total balst, felt great, all the joints in the foot were behaving and then at mile 7 it was like my left knee PINGED .... so I ran-hobbled a bit until I couldn't. I stopped and stretched and massaged the knee a bit, walked to test it, it felt OK so started to run again .... NO it said so I repeated the stretching and massaging. Thing is I repeated this all the way home, basically 3 miles of hobbling and stretching :-(
I'm pretty sure it's the IT band (Iliotibial Band) & I'm heading out to the garage to retrieve my foam roller for some home torture BLAH!
I am prepared for lots of grimacing, grinding teeth and well yes, TEARS!
In other news .... took the kids to Legoland today, parental hell
I had a BALST on several rides and scream louder than the kiddos but they were happy wooohooo :-)
