Though it wasn't pretty or fast, I managed to complete the 6 without any major IT band pain! However, my fitness, or lack there of, really showed. I was dragging for the last two miles, but happy as can be when I finished it. I had a few minor aches and pains afterwards, but nothing worse than expected. I kept it light on Sunday with some dog walking and strength training.
Still smiles after struggling through 6!
High point: long run success! 6 miles in the books.
Low point: Dragging my behind through those last two miles! It was only 4 months ago when I could drag my behind through 20 miles. Hopefully those days return!
I'm definitely at the point where I need to add in extra cross training to bring my fitness up to snuff, and continue on with the strength training.
How was everyone's weekend? Any training successes/struggles to report?
