IT Band Update

Here's the scoop so far...

Still can't run longer than 20 minutes without pain on the outside of my left knee. Had an MRI tonight on my left leg to confirm ITBS and rule anything else weird out. Next week I may have a cortisone shot into the bursa of the knee to alleviate the pain and allow me to run.

The good news is that I can bike and swim without any pain at all. Karen is kicking my butt in her Master's swim on Wednesday evenings. I'm still swimming only catch-up, but I'm feeling MUCH smoother in the water. I'm actually getting comfortable breathing on the right!

Will keep you updated.
