Been rolling on foam and wearing a band and hoping for the best. The right ITB seems to be settling down. Now my wife has it in the left leg. Got 6.5 miles yesterday
--felt great but had to walk a few times for traffic. I'm stuck here for running in the Biltmore Arcadia locale, and you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a long stream of cars headed somewhere. But I got my HR up and was pain free for the ITB. Gonna try raising the mileage, especially on weekends. I want to try getting to 25 miles per week by RNR AZ 1/2 Marathon, then build from there for San Diego. Thanks for all the comments and I now have 5 followers (woo hooo to my followers!!) You guys are cool! I added a counter and a top commenter box to the blog.
Now that you have read my running drivel, I'll tell you about some of the best Gu available. Vanilla bean is capital Y Yummy! Love it and will definitely keep some on hand along with the lemon flavor which is my all time favorite. I want to try the Roctain next. I also love the Clif Shot Block lemon lime. I had 1/2 a Vanilla Bean packet at mile two yesterday and the other 1/2 at mile 4. I ran negative splits except for traffic stops, and ran the last .62 at almost under 9. That's nice and fast for me, especially at the end of 6 miles. Was it the Gu or was it me?
Take care followers!!!
