Hello fellow runners!
So yesterday I attempted to run 16 miles, it was actually going pretty great until at the 11.5 mile marker and had to stop. (luckily some random woman in a car offered me a lift back home.... THANK YOU!)
Some ice, pain killers and bandages later I started google-ing and turns out I have what appears to be Illiotibial Band symptom (ITBS or ITS).
I belive it's a serious injury because I can barely walk, some of my flatmates think i should have it checked in the NHS.
So I wanted to ask, has anyone suffered this? should I go have it checked out o stick to rest, ice, elevation and compresion?
also, does anyone know how long it will be before I can run again? the Rome marathon is getting closer!
Thank you for your help and time!
