Okay, I'm seriously a horrible blogger. I guess I have just been a little down about the whole not really being able to run thing and I didn't want to bring every one else down with me.
I am taking more time off of running. However, this time... it'll be legit. I am not running until the middle of April. At that time, I will test out the ITB situation and see how I am doing. Here is the thing though, I have to get it through my head that I am going to have to start out like I am a beginner. I am doing everything I can (weights, elliptical and bike) to keep up the cardio, however, that doesn't mean that I can automatically go out and start at 30 mile weeks initially. I am going to have to see my first long run being like 4miles. Just that thought alone is dreadful. I am just facing the hard truth.
I can't sign up for any races. I keep getting e-mails informing me of races and I get all excited... until I remember that I'm injured. Humph.
The weather here has been gorgeous and I am sorely tempted to go outside and run. This injury has been going on far too long. All it needs is time and a lot of foam rolling. I have been really diligent on doing that.
Question: when you foam roll your ITB... are you sore the next day?? Because I always am! It's always up and down the side of my upper legs. Woah nelly!
Welp, that's all for now. Here is to another month of wishing I could be pounding the pavement and wishing I could be running a half marathon that's like literally down the street from me on the Saturday before Easter!! Some day :-)
