Omm pack every time. Not cheap but very worthwhile. I use the 25l pack. Wouldn't trail or fell run without it. Also use it for hill walking and over night camping. Lightweight durable and good storage. Particularly like the waist pockets to store my much needed jelly babies.
I have overcome ITBS in the last couple of months. I am due to purchase a new pair of shoes soon. I have been wearing a stablity shoe until now, but have read that I should look at purchasing a pair of cushioned. My running shop reckon I should stick with the stability option. Don't know what I should be doing now!?!?
I welcome any advice and your experiences. Thanks for reading.
I have recently overcome itbs with a combination of physio, foam roller self message, a pat strap (a couple of inches above the knee) and exercising glutes and hip abductors plus Lunges and squats every day.
Also rested from all running for four weeks. Did other cardio work at the gym instead. Once I started running again I built up very slowly. Don't start where you previously left off.
I'm back up to Sunday runs of 10 miles and hoping to do a hm soon. I am now completely without pain, but it has taken 5 months to get here.
I understand your frustrations but stick with it. It is worth the effort.
