i have a similar story. Started running 3 years ago and was up to around 30-35 miles a week. 21:00 5k, 45:01 10k. Around 2 years ago I developed ITBS problems and kind of just drifted through the last 2 years doing roughly 20 miles a week on and off. Sometimes I'd not run for a month at a time and admittedly I got lazy.
I got my act together about a month ago and have been running every other day for the last 3 weeks. I'm up to 55 minutes each run, with the intention of going to 4 days a week in around a fortnight. Once I've got a couple of months of 30+ mile weeks on my legs I'll be going back to train with my club. So far my IT band is behaving itself, so fingers crossed !
Hello folks. I haven't been on in ages. ITBS recovery has been taking longer than I hoped, not helped by a couple of additional (acute) injuries, a holiday, and a 2 week cold. I'm currently still running every other day, for 50 minutes. The physio says I should only need one more visit to him.
I have been to training with my club since April, so I have no doubt lost a lot of fitness. All my 2012 targets went out the window.
I hope you are all doing better than me, and hello to all the new faces on the thread.
Hi folks, just checking in to say I have had some ITB problems so trying not to think too much about running. Coming on here doesn't help . I've ran 3 miles in the last 3 weeks so I'm pretty much at a standstill. I'll come back on once I have something to report. I hope you are all doing well and unlike me, avoiding unjury. All the best for now.
