Boston Sign up and ITB

Its September 9th and the Boston registration open up today, of course for the runners who are really fast, BQ -20.....My day will be on Wednesday as my time is BQ-16...
"Registration will occur on a “rolling admission” schedule, beginning with the fastest qualifiers. On Monday, September 9, eligible runners who have met the qualifying standard for their age and gender by 20 minutes or more may register. On Wednesday, September 11 at 10:00 a.m. ET, if space remains, registration will open for those who have met their qualifying standard by 10 minutes or more. If space remains, registration will open on Friday, September 13 at 10:00 a.m. ET for those who have met their qualifying standard by five minutes or more. Registration will close on Saturday, September 14 at 10:00 p.m. ET."

Again its hard to say how fast Boston 2014 will sell out. Experienced Boston runners thinks that 8000-10 000 will sign up today Monday.

The latest two weeks had been kind of miserable for me. After a hot hilly 16 miler two weeks ago, where I got kind of dehydrated. My inner thigh and back cramped up. It was unrunable and I took 4 days off from running.  I have to say I was exhausted and I think running n all this humid hot weather finally got to me. I got lazy during the 4 days off and was stupid and started up again with long run the second day back....I asked for and my ITB was back, full force! Always when I take time off and start again i tends to come back. Its been good lately but I should have learned my lesson from the past.  So another couple of days off, with foam rolling, XT and stretching + Ibuprofen did the trick. Tried running yesterday and had no issues....

So what works for me and my ITB:
If I need to stop running....foam rolling, stretching and Ibuprofen
If no issues, just keep running, stretch the ITB and foam roll. But the key for my ITB is really the plank. I have been slacking and not been doing it as frequently as I should.....


With 2 weeks of low mileage I start to worry about Steamtown. I need to get some good quality in now, but not being stupid and rush into it.....I definitely have a good base, and with some good weeks I should be fine! #GLlikeNeverBefore
