Weekly Roundup: May 19th

We had a good week.  We finally started getting some warmer and sunny weather in VA which was a great pick me up.  It's been a cold and rainy spring and I have been desperate for some better weather.  I've been battling some knee pain, that I believe is the result of a pretty painful bruise on my left knee, just below the knee cap.  I've started using KT Tape to help with my IT band trouble as well as knee issues and have had pretty good luck.  I'm going to rework the knee taping, but IT band seems to be doing just fine.  With two races on the horizon (a 10k next weekend and a half the following weekend), I need to focus on staying healthy and relatively pain free.

And now for our workouts this week...

  3. Sounds like a great week! I've also been having IT/Knee issues and have thought about trying the KT Tape. I've never used it before so I'm leery that I won't be doing it properly. Did you just follow the instructional video? Tips/Suggestions?

    1. I used the videos online and have been trying a few different tape arrangements for my knee. The videos are very easy to follow.
