2.1 miles easy in South Weber after work. I hadn't tried a run in two weeks and thought I'd give it a shot today. The pain was minimal; actually, it wasn't even pain. It was just noticeable that it's not quite 100% if that makes sense. I could sense its presence, but it wasn't painful. AP 7:06

Another 0.65 miles right afterward with my 3-year old Evie. She wanted to practice for the South Ogden Kid's K, which she is signed up for in two weeks. She did a 15:06 pace for the 0.65. The actual kid's K that she's running is more like 0.9 on a hilly course, so it'll be interesting to see how she does and if she wants to keep practicing for it.

2.1 miles at 6:15 AP. I ran in South Weber, the same loop I do most days I test out the IT. Today it felt the best it has since the injury. I only felt it for like 1 minute in the middle and it wasn't as intense as before. I felt like a fat kid at summer camp though with my breathing. It was very heavy. I have quite a bit of fitness I need to regain, but hopefully I can begin that process soon!

1.7 miles, no watch. Well today was extremely frustrating. After Saturday's relatively pain free 2-mile run, I thought I was on the mend. This morning I attempted two miles again and right around 1.25 in the pain came on strong and by 1.7 I couldn't eve hobble, let alone run. I had to walk it in keeping my leg as straight as possible to avoid the pain of bending it.

I went from best it's felt in two months on Saturday to worst it's felt in three months today. Going on four months since I've had this and just no progress, so frustrated! Today was almost as bad as when the symptoms first started.

Physical therapy again later this afternoon...
