So I am doing my first ironman in september and I am having this issue with my it band. When I get about 3-6 minutes into a run the outside of my right knee has a sort of dull ache, it continues to get worse to the point where I cannot finish running and have to walk back. This happened 4 weeks ago. I decided it would be a good time to just focus on swimming and biking. When I bike I have no IT band pain whatsoever. Well now almost a month has gone by and my IT band is still not any better. Same thing, about 5 minutes into the run its really painful. Should I see a chiropracter? Massage therapist? Stop biking for a week and see what happens? Any insight besides the usual stretch, ice and advil would be great. Thanks guys!
