Ran twice this week. 4 miles on Tuesday and just over 3 yesterday.

They both sucked. Yesterday was the worse of the two and it convinced me that I can't run anymore right now.

I may drop in later with an update.

Very sorry to hear this. I had to stay away from all forms of exercise after dealing with chronic itbs injury where my hip was aching all the time even while not running.  After seeing all kinds of doctors, many imagings done, three different PTs over two years period, I just stopped everything including stretching and strength workouts for about 2 months resting completely. I build back gradually starting with my PT workouts then slowly increase my milage and incorporated strength exercise too. I have flare-ups here and there but never lasted more than for few days.  

 

I hope the complete rest will do you good. And be patient coming back.  Good luck!

Appreciate the support. I've been through this before, too. Just at the most frustrating point right now. Plus, it's been a long couple of years, and I don't have time to waste.

I hear you Dave! 

I just remembered and wanted to mention one thing for you to may be consider.  When I get ITBS ( including three weeks ago after my marathon- it starts with achy hip then get that acute sharp pain on the outside knee) cupping done by my chiropractor immediately resolves it.  I come out of that treatment bruised but it is like a magic that I can immediately go and run after that.  But then I have to get my acts together with strength work. I get lazy after few months,  then the cycle repeats. 

If you decide to try this option,  find a chiropractor/PT that works with athletes and specializes with cupping.

Ugh. My running has been nonexistent as well. I think the cycling is causing me some heel pain. Not sure what to do. Sigh
