So it turns out that all along i just had IT band syndrome, which is pretty painful, but now that i know what is actually wrong with my body, I know how to treat it. I have been stretching about 3 times a day, and using the painful foam roller to break up tissue in my leg and that has helped immensely. After Saturday's 6 mile run i could barely move my legs without experiencing pain, and already, just on tuesday, i feel like i could probably run a few minutes without any pain. I will run on the treadmill tomorrow morning to see where i am in healing. I really hope i can heal by Saturday because our team in running in the Santa Monica 5k race, and i really want to be able to complete it with as little pain as possible.
