So, I have been doing ok, I am able to run for about 10 minutes before I can feel my IT band and then at 20 minutes it starts to hurt, with a sharp pain. However, good news is that my recovery time has shortened. On Saturday I went to practice and ran for about 2 miles before I had to stop and walk the other 3 miles. My knees hurt pretty badly after that and walking was painful. I stretched a lot throughout the day and used the foam roller and by night time, i could walk pretty much pain free again. This is a vast improvement from the first time when I actually injured my IT band and i couldn't walk for a week.
