Got up at 4:30 and went running with the girls from SERC this morning. We did a 7 mile loop. VERY HILLY! My IT band was not too happy with me. My legs were having a battle for tempo, my IT band wanted to go fast (less pain when running quick), but my quads and hams wanted to go slow, too much lactic acid in them from yesterday.
In the end my IT Band won out, we were cruising around 8:25 pace, not too shabby for hills. B is a good running partner for me because we push each other without realizing it.
My IT band is pretty sore but I figure it isn't going to get truly better until I get off of it for good for a couple of weeks and that is going to have to wait until after Boston!
