From runnersworld.com:

ITB syndrome can result from any activity that causes the leg to turn inward repeatedly. This can include wearing worn-out shoes, running downhill or on banked surfaces, running too many track workouts in the same direction, or simply running too many miles.

So, my question is, if I've picked up an ITB strain on my left leg, and I want to do a bit of light work on the track, should I run clockwise or anticlockwise? (In recent weeks, I've tended to run the half of my intervals anticlockwise and the second half clockwise).

KC, this would be like thinking about which detergent is best when cleaning the toilets on the Titanic mid Atlantic. It really is playing with details that have a small influence on your ITB. When you say ITB sprain what do you mean and where are you experiencing issues? At the knee or hip?
