I got a low profile knee brace to wear to hopefully help keep my knee strong so I can keep running, and it has worked great! I wore it yesterday for 5 Miles Easy on the treadmill at an 8:50 pace and I had no IT Band pain.
Then today was a company run around our campus lake. I had 6 Miles Easy so I got to road test my knee in the brace and again it was great! I did a nice and easy 9:06 pace and enjoyed the crap out of the run. It was 80 degrees and 18mph winds. The lake had sunshine gleaming off of it like it was a mirror. There were lilac bushes around the lake in full bloom and the had the most fragrant smell of spring. And I saw one bunny, which I say “hi bunny” when I see them even if people think I’m crazy.
