I have been looking forward to this weekend for awhile. This was supposed to be a big brick. Century bike ride on Saturday then half marathon on Sunday. Well the last couple times I have run I have had some pretty intense IT band pain in my right knee. I took the last week off from running, roam rolled as much as I could stand, and even had a massage. Today I did an easy run with my Sons for their Jog-A-Thon at school. It didn’t feel so great; and two hours later I stood up from sitting and had a horribly sharp pain in my knee. So I have to take off my running shorts this weekend and put on my big girl panties and not do the half marathon. This is the first race I have ever signed up for and not done. I know that I need to get this fixed NOW and if I push it too early it will be much harder to rehab it later. I know it is the right choice but I am kind of bummed about it. But, I am still really excited to do my first Century on a bike tomorrow! I promise, post to follow! Now time to foam roll!
