ITBS, part III

Well, it's been a while since my last update in March, but I must say that nothing has been happening.  Nothing.  Because I'm on the couch again with IT Band syndrome, a miserable, miserable running/cycling injury that involves an inflamed band of connective tissue that runs between the hip and the outside of the knee.  I had a bout with it 2 years ago that ended in me having a PM flare and increasing my Prednisone dosage.  Not this time, though.  Or so far, anyway.  My bloodwork has been normal, so I've got no choice but to heal this thing the old fashioned way:  rest, stretching, strengthening, and massage.  It's exhausting.  I'm a little overwhelmed with the attentiveness to the daily rehab routine.  It would be so much easier to just run for miles and miles in the heat, up hills, through poison ivy and chiggers.  God, do I miss that...
