IT band injury?

20 miler done, but it was an ugly run. I post the details in the running forum soon.

Well I completed my 20 mile run but it was an awful day. I am usually posting my good times so I think I have to post my bad times as well. Here it goes, it’s pretty bad.


Total Time 3:32

So here’s what happened. I started off not feeling very good my calf was hurting right off the bat. But I didn’t think much of this because the first miles are never good. A few more miles go by and my calf is getting worse. Miles 10-15 felt like I had found my rhythm and I was thinking that I was in the clear. But after my last pit stop (mile 15) my calf came back with a vengeance. It was just dead weight from then on. This threw off my gait and before I knew it my hamstring, knee and ankle were all in pain. But I couldn’t stop now I only had a few miles to get back to the car. I really struggled those last 3 miles to maintain an 11 min pace.
