      Hoping the stretching and flexing works out for you! Maybe a good fast walk before striding into a run? Sounds to me like PRP works for some and nodda for others. Good luck!~)

      We must share a brain and body. I was supposed to start my first half training 1/21, but still broken. And I've eaten enough for the both of us plus 3 others. Hang in there and know you aren't alone, but go to your dr and have that looked at. Could be IT band related too.

      Yea, I haven't resorted to the dr. yet. I certainly know what he would say...PT. Since I am going to the trainer 3 nights a week I'll continue to work on stretching my quads and working the glutes. I also have to work on keeping my pelvis underneath me.

      Sciatica seems to be ok...thanks for asking. I have kinda had a lot of stress this week so I have fallen off the band wagon. I need to get back on for the ride. Wish me luck...I tend to loose focus when things aren't goin' well. So, I haven't eaten very well.
