    Ran my first half today. Despite injury plagued training and feeling a bit under the weather I still ran under 2, which was my goal.

    ^ Great time for your first half! I don't run my first until February, and my goal is under 2:15.

    4 easy miles for me today

    Stretching and foam rolling resolved my IT Band issues. It took awhile, but I no longer have problems with it.

    Thanks for the tips. I unfortunately feel like I dont do the stretching right, as with all of these exercises I feel nothing.
    Doing foam rolling though, both with a ball and a roller. Feels good.
    How long did you pause until you tried running again?

    I'd wait until you have no pain...also make sure you are good and warm before you go out those first few times.

    The foam roller felt good to you? Not for me, particularly when I first started. Some of the knots I rolled over made me want to scream like a little girl. :laugh:

    I didn't stop running entirely, but did run less often at a slower pace and for shorter distances.

    I have a classic blackroll:

    And wish I had a harder foam roller... So when doing slowly, yes it hurts but in a good way.

    Running doesn't work out at all for me, unfortunately.
    As said, I paused for 1 week with running after having severe issues and then it came back after few distance already. No point even trying...

    4 mile trail Vet's run/race. 37 degrees, raining, muddy, great time and event. I don't know if there are any better shoes in mud and trails than Inov-8, but these have been great. Mudclaw's with larger lugs and Roclites with smaller lugs. Great traction.

    Happy Vet's Day to all Vet's and current military out there. 101st alumni here.

    Hilly 16 on Saturday followed by the worst case of food poisoning I have ever had. Lost all of the food and water inte after the run so I was extremely dehydrated on Friday night. Decided to go get some fluids restored at the urgent care because I was feeling so bad. Yesterday was still unable to eat until 10pm ish, but I am feeling much better today.

    A lot of sickness going around here, SBB and NYR - hope you guys can feel better and get back up to full strength again.

    6 miles today, crushed it (by my standards) at 9:26 per mile
