Believe it or not, I personaly have found that if I take nourishment adn stay fed, it is less of a problem. Not Gu, but a Clif bar or something more filling.

Thanks all! Pain subsided at 5 pm last night.

I am going to play this buy ear, or should I say IT Band? I have been watching videos and stuff and they say IT band issues happen more with increased mileage (check), hills (uh double check) and uneven running surfaces (triple check!).

Will take it easy now and next week. Will do strength training, riding the horse, maybe break out the bike.

The pain is the outside of the knee to the bottom front, it is not under the knee cap where the cruciate is, so do not believe that is the case. I, unfortunately, know all about cruciates as I have paid for more than 10 of them on dogs!

I figured if I feel good enough to start, I'll have 3+ miles into the race where I need to make the decision for 1/2 or 10K. Or I can walk it too! Last year the slowest 1/2 time was 3:17:00 at a 15 minute pace. I'm sure that would be doable if I run till the IT band acts up. At least the race ground is even!

I definitely won't run if I am in pain, that hurts! emoticon

Not to scare you, but it could also be a cruciate ligament problem.
Get it checked out as soon as you can.
Please keep us posted how things are going.

P.S. It's just a race. You are so much more important than your achievements!

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

1) Don't run in pain.
2) See your doctor.

I agree with Houndlover1 - be careful as the idea should be for a long term running plan and not just a race. I personally would not run the race without medical clearance. Bummer yes - but remember the long term goals.

Please don't risk running this HM. Don't do a 10 mile training run, either. Your are running to improve your health not ruining your health so you can win, right?
I recommend seeing a doctor and then physical therapist right away and only if he/she ok's it do the race. In that case you would be fine running the race without any further training as you should taper anyhow.

emoticon My 1/2 training has been going along just fine. I am in week 11. I am following Hal Higdon's plan. I have been running for about 3 yrs now, and yes I have good shoes!

Last Sunday I did a 9 mile run and at 7.7 miles thought I was going to die. The intense pain in my left knee forced me to walk breaks. The hip pain wasn't that bad, but the knee...ow. Figured it is probably an IT Band issue.

I got a foam roller and have been using that and stretching the IT Band.

I went for a short, slow run this am and everything was fine until about an hour later and this nagging, throbbing is going on in the left knee again. I have iced twice already and taken an Aleve. (which is NOT working!)

I am thinking I am not going to do my 10 mile run Saturday and maybe not try to do any running till next Wed and then just something short w/o hills.

Strength train and stretch the IT band.

Then... run my first 1/2 on 10-5.

Any thoughts, suggestions? Sympathy/condolences accepted...bah
