My Action Plan:
*Easy 2min run/1 min walk for my long runs and maybe a 4/1 for the other runs for at least a week
*Foam Rolling (trying to get this in 2x/day)
*Stretching (at least once per day holding for 1min+ on the IT band)
*lots of advil.... :(
*Icing (@ least once per day)
*Strength training hips/glutes/quads 2x/week (first time was yeterday and man I'm sore - I've never worked my hips before!)
*Thinking about getting a knee strap (haven't bought it yet - any recommendations?)
Let's hope this all works though it's SO hard to find time to do all this. Seriously. The foam roller takes forever when I do it right (stopping on all the tender spots until they feel not so tender).
Anybody else have tips? I really appreciate the ones you guys wrote on my last blog. Thanks so much!
