OK I am on day 3 NOT being ABLE to run. I of course in the past have gone three days without running...BUT that was my choice. Now I am HURT...boo hoo and CAN'T run! I am not sure why or how but something is not right. My right knee on the outside hurts. Today I did the eliptical and didn't have any pain. As soon as I got off....I tried a little light jog in place. All better right?? OUCH! So that ended and I left the gym deflated. I am in the middle of training for my half (you know the one where I was going to P.R.) so I guess I am going to be resting and icing and not running for a few more days. Another runner I talked to thought it may be my I.T. band. NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! So I guess that means more stretching?? I need to do some more research and HOPE this goes away soon. What can I do if I can't run to keep up my endurance?? I did get my tank top from Running Chics (www.runningchics.com) in the mail today that I won on MissZippy's blog BUT it is way to BIG. UGH!! Hoping to be able to swap out and maybe upon it's return I will be RUNNING again.
Has anyone else had knee or I.T. issues??
