A little background (where i’ve been):
I know it’s been a while since I posted. Part of the reason I’ve been so quiet is that I believe I’m having some IT band issues with my right hip. After a 9 mile run on Labor Day weekend, it was really tight and sore, but I really didn’t think much of it until I was in Yoga class the following week trying and failing to do simple stretches and poses. My Yoga teacher, who is also a runner, was the one that suggested it was my IT band and has given me some stretches to do. I believe I am out of the woods as far as a serious injury is concerned as it seems to be working itself out, but due to this I have significantly backed off on running for the month of September.
