Strength or Stretching or Fish Oil Works #twit2fit

Magically, I think I can walk at a normal pace again.  As you can see below, I'm doing just about every strengthening and stretching exercise under the sun to try and recover (the AROM ones are physical therapy prescribed--Active Range of Motion).  I've been doing weights and other strengthening just to keep a decent metabolism rate going.  And, of course, I'm taking fish oil for some reason--supposedly it helps with inflammation and heart health (probably in the same way as aspirin does--it thins the blood).

I can walk without a major limp. #twit2fit

The left piriformis bursa is still pretty ticked off, and I now I have a little left hip flexor pain, but I can mostly walk normally on a 600 mg dose of Advil.  That's pretty good, considering that last week I couldn't hide the limp on Meloxicam, Advil, or even both.

ITBS links

Several of my local running circle are experiencing or have experienced IT Band Syndrome. I have occasionally had tenderness or tightness in the correct area, but never the debilitating pain that immediately halts my run. Because of my experience, I've been collecting links to IT band stretching exercises:
