ive been training for my first HIM for the last 6 or 7 months (its on september 10th) and have just recently come down with a bit of ITBS which has side-lined me on the running. i have been doing all of the strength-training that i can find as well as using the stick to massage. i haven't run for about 2.5 weeks but have been keeping up with the swim/bike workouts (in fact doing a bit more to make up for the lost running). if the running pain goes aways in the next few weeks do you think it would be possible to still do the race? or should i just do an oly?
