Back to running........... oh wait.... I'm not. Last night in lieu of running I did a super girly night of diy facial, manicure, pedicure, and eating coffee flavored ice cream directly out of the carton. I then logged the 75 minutes in my running log as intense cardio. jk. As I tweeted last night, my left IT band is almost completely back to normal where as the right one is hovering around 72%. As of this morning, I'd say closer to 87%. I could probably have done a short run last night, but I opted to rest (and gorge on ice cream). I really want my last 20 miler to go well this weekend, and if that means sacrificing some "junk miles" in the process so be it.
And because you didn't see quite enough pictures of me taking on 13.1 miles on Saturday, here are more for your viewing pleasure. Seriously... I think it's almost to the point that you could print them out, staple them together and create your very own flipbook of my race. ::brb out prepping craft supplies::
This should answer my "why do my IT bands hurt so bad?!?!?" question. Uff.
