Yesterday I slept in and skipped my regularly scheduled run with the group. Instead, I woke up late, threw on some running clothes and my new shoes, grabbed my borrowed Garmin, saw the battery was dead, put it back down, grabbed my iPod shuffle and was out the door for a quick run on my own.
I ran 3-ish miles in less than 35 minutes. And guess what? I felt no pain in IT band. Granted it was a short run, but it was sans the intervals I’ve become accustomed to and at a quicker pace. Afterwards I did some squats while I waiting for my breakfast smoothie to blend.
Let’s see how it fares during tomorrow’s run, my last long-ish run before Flying Pig Marathon.
