IT Band. (ii-tee • band) 1. Iliotibial band. 2. Super tight piece of crap in my leg stretching from my hip to my knee that causes my knee to hurt.
Two runs now have been cut short. But I hope that my knowledge gained from Oxford Physical Therapy, some ice, some rolling with the rolling pin, and the resurgence of my stretching (I have been bad) will get me back in a couple of weeks to regular pain free running.
In the meantime, maybe I'll hop on my bike trainer to keep up the cardio. Though biking has always hurt my knees... so maybe that won't work. We shall see!
