I saw the doctor for my regular check-up, and talked to him about the problems I've been having with my IT band. He had me start taking Motrin, and sent me to a physical therapist. The anti-inflammatory already has helped - I felt normal on the bike last Saturday for the first time since last June. The PT guy gave me some good stretches, as well. Too bad the weather is going to keep the bike on the trainer for a while - watching those guys suffer at the cyclocross race last weekend inspired me to want to get out and ride.
