Disastrous early end to W9R2 last night ... despite my leg feeling absolutely fine and hence an attempt at a run, I had to stop in agony after 1k and found that I couldn't even walk, so had to call my sister to come and collect me This is the first time I've ever had to stop a run, all previous problems have been aches and pains after running, so I knew it was serious. I hobbled along to our Minor Injuries Unit this morning to have the diagnosis confirmed - Iliotibial Band Syndrome. Lots of RICE and definitely no running for at least 3-6 weeks, and referral to a Physio, plus lots of stretches to do. To say I am totally gutted is an understatement - I was due to run a 5k Race For Life on the 25th, so it looks like I'll be walking it. Is there anyone else who has suffered with ITB and got back into running? I really need to see some light at the end of this dark tunnel!
