A friend of mine has a friend….who swears by the IT band support by Cho-Pat. So I ordered one. No running until Friday at the earliest, and only then will I do no more than 2 miles. It is usually after 3 that I hurt. So, I’ll do a bunch of 2 milers before the race. My new It Band support will be here late in the week or early next. Just in time to use for the race.
Hot baths, stretching, icing, and ibuprofen in the meantime.
Maybe this will do the trick!
I’m interested – what does it do? And I’m really interested to see if it helps.
wow, sorry to hear about the IT band issues — get some rest before your big race, hope this will help!!! take care
apparently the cho-pat puts pressure on your sore point which is supposed to keep the IT band from rubbing the wrong way against either your knee ligaments or the knee itself. that friction from rubbing the wrong way is what creates the pain. dunno if it works or not, but worth a 15 dollar try.
