This was a better week with the ITBS issue. Each run progressively got better, and it helped seeing our chiropractor & massage therapist on Thursday.
Monday (4/7): Ran 5 miles on the treadmill at the gym, did some short burst of hills up to a 2% incline, maxed at 6.2 mph – it was a good run, still ITBS soreness but seems to be getting better
Tuesday (4/8): No workout
Wednesday (4/9): Ran 4.1 miles with my morning running group
Thursday (4/10): No workout
Friday (4/11): No workout
Saturday (4/12): Today I ran the Coffin Island 5k on Folly Beach SC. As you know from following my blog I don’t do many 5ks; however, I had friends putting on the event and wanted to support them. I still got it! I ran a 23:30 (7:34 per mile pace), and got 3rd in my age group. I ran the race with my running partner Luke. I will do a race recap post later with more details. After the race, Luke & I ran the course again for extra mileage and to assist in sweeping the course to confirm everyone finished. No issues with the ITBS.
