One step forward two steps back

Joy oh joy! This week was going so well as far as staying on track with my running and workouts and then out of nowhere my hip started hurting and bad. I have pretty much come to the conclusion that is is iliotibial band syndrome, probably from running in a crappy pair of /pageshoes on snow and ice....the duck walks, squats and excessive kicking probably didn't help either.
I did get my new running shoes this week but really did not want to use them outside until some of the slush and mess was gone after all the crappy pair I was referring to only have about 10 miles on them, they are not even dirty yet! The salesman at the shoe store i purchased them at insisted they would be better for for my type of foot than the ones I had been using and loved. Was he wrong! They felt way too snug once I started running in them and they twisted my knee out....Uggghh.
I went to the runners world website this morning looked up and did stretches to help with IT band syndrome and I also went to Danny Dreyers Chi Running site to see if he had any advice on it, which of course he did :)
So, come 2:00 today I am going to go break in my super shiny clean brand new pair of Asics and hopefully the stretching, Dannny's Chi running advice and a ton of Ibuprofen will alleviate some of the pain!
