MRI this morning. Results were negative for a meniscus tear, so that's great news. MRI did show IT Band Syndrome and I will continue to roll, stretch, ice, and do other hip strengthening exercises until this sucker goes away.

2.300.000.000.002.30

2.3 miles easy with a short stretching session in the middle. 2 miles is about the threshold below which I don't experience any knee pain. So for now, we'll keep it to around 2 miles with a really good stretching session before and something during like today.

Followed running up by wallking 18 holes of golf. I was 1 under par thru 8 and then some dude who lives along the course came from his house and asked to join us. I wasn't happy about that. I hate when people spectate my golf rounds. Long story short, I choked on the last hole with a penalty and ended with double bogey for a 37, one over par. This ties my best 9-hole round ever and I really think I could've at least hit even par if this dude didn't show up.

1.25 miles easy from the hotel here in San Diego. Planned on two miles, but knee started hurting a lot and had to stop, turn-around, and mostly walk it in.

2.1 easy miles in South Weber. IT band felt substantially better than two weeks ago in San Diego, but I could still feel it some. I had to stop and stretch after a mile and then it felt a bit better the second mile.

It feels like it's 1-2 weeks away from being better, but I know better than to believe that by now (as I've said several times a couple months ago that I thought it was 1-2 weeks away). If it were healed in the next 3-4 weeks I'd be ecstatic. I'd love to salvage the autumn racing season at least!

0.75 miles. I didn't feel any adverse effects from yesterday's short run, so I figured I'd see if I could do another 2 miles relatively pain free. I found the answer out somewhat quickly. Nope.
