Well I did a 5K this morning on my tread. 35 minutes flat! Put the tread at 11% incline and walked, to be honest got a pretty good sweat going. But for seriousness I am ready for this ITB to be done and over with forever! Grateful that I can walk with out pain.

Tried to run today and 3 minutes in knee was hurting immediately. Getting way depressed right now this crap is no fun. To the point now that if the knee is better by February I am calling for the year. Tired of rehab and not seeing results right now, and again I blame myself 100%!

1800 meters in the pool today, followed by 3 painful miles of running. Knee is still the same as day one, and unfortunately there is no end in sight.

20 minutes on the tread @ 7.7 pace. 

Positive, there was no pain today. Just weird some days are good and some days are bad I guess. But I guess it is something to build on.

25 minutes on the treadmill. Another positive day, minor to no pain.

Pace was easy, hopefully we're on the upside of things. Not getting my hopes up though.
