Happy feels! Today was a big day for many TAA athletes including the amazing Andrea White. Andrea struggled with IT Band Syndrome for almost her entire running life and was recently humble enough to ask for help from coach and now courageous in her efforts to trust the process and be patient. Today, Andrea tossed out her ITBS brace and she finally fully believes and is experiencing the benefits of training smart and executing well. She’ll have the occasional tightness after 2 hours on a long run. She recently logged a PR in month mileage AND a PR in week mileage. Get this! No stretching. No change in form. No strength training. No generic training plan. The solution: a custom training plan designed/monitored/adjusted by a professional, the right intensity/volume, science-backed work/rest ratio, appropriate gradual progressions, but most importantly a coachable, positive athlete with a focus and attention to detail that will lead to success in everything she does in life! Now, if only she’ll replace her running shoes with a million miles, take it one day at a time, and remember what got her here, stay locked in on execution, and HAVE FUN improving and catching goals.
ITBS is caused by bad training. Don’t fight the truth. Be honest, train the right way, and you will see for yourself.
Haters will say this is a made up story or it was luck. Nope and nope. Train smart or hobble around.
