I'm Back!

It's been a minute folks... but i'm finally feelin' myself! It took close to 4 months to come back and start training. I just needed a break and now i feel refreshed! Yesterday was my first day coming back. I also hit the weight room last night, so i'm sore from both activities! I only ran 25 min. Just want to start easy just in case my body wants to give me problems starting up to fast. It's been one crazy but great summer! If only I could tell my stories! haha! Maybe if you are a close friend and you request them! I will keep everyone posted on how things are going for me. My plans are to be ready by Nov. Much Love everyone!

Iliotibial Band

I'm just coming off some ups and downs in my training with the most recent being a bout with my IT band.

Pronunciation: /ˌī-ˈtē- band/
1. :a fibrous thickening of the fascia lata, the origin is the anterior iliac distress. It extends down the lateral part of the thigh to the insertion point, the lateral epiwannacryle. When these two are simultaneously stretched it triggers the vocal cords to create a grunt or yelp usually followed by a very visual limp
2. :or something like that

...well enough medical talk, I was on the bike for a while but I'm happy to be back running again.
