under a rock
Hi, I've just started trail running recently. I'm historically a road runner but I'm constantly battling my IT band. After doing some research I decided to add at least one trail run a week to get away from the pounding and repetitive motion of road running that encourages my IT band to act up. I'm loving the trails. Now, I'm planning on trail running 2 days a week instead of just one. Luckily I have lots of options within 30 mins of my home.
Hopefully I can pick up some tips from this group. I'm in awe of those of you doing ultra distances, very inspiring. The picture thread makes me want to get out there and run!
Goals: 1)Get my IT Band to cooperate 2) Run lots of trails. 3) Get my back to cooperate.
