Well, the IT band issues definitely put a dent in my training. My running mileage ended up at 55 total for the month – my third lowest in the past year. However, my cycling mileage was actually just a bit over last month’s at 299 miles – my highest ever! When I added everything up my total training time ended up being my 2nd highest of the year – very comforting in the midst of the running injury frustration!
I started this month off with some beautiful 2 milers up on the dirt roads while visiting MountainMan. Things are definitely feeling better and I enjoyed the change in scenery.
I don’t think I’ve actually lost too much fitness, and my running form is appreciating the extra attention. Hopefully all the form work, PT, rolling, and stretching will pay off with a nice build back up this month!
