Is it the 15th week now? I never know. First run for a week or so today. 5.7km around the streets. I jinxed myself a couple of weeks ago by getting excited about my running. I was pushing the long run out, and ran headlong into what Dr. Google described as a bit of an IT Band niggle just after the 10 mile point. Two short runs after that were also slightly painful, so I backed off and took a week off. I was getting itchy, so I figured a week was long enough in the first instance. I inched along and tried to keep a mental eye on my knee for the first sign of a problem, but I'm happy to say that it didn't complain at all, apart from a slight feeling of 'stringy-ness' in my tendons which is probably just the direct result of being over-conscious of the state of my knee. Phew. Time to come up with a bit of a preventative maintenance plan for the ITB stuff before I blow it again, I think.
