Menu (Injured runner friendly!)

Ok – the title is a bit tongue-in-cheek. I did a 5K road race this weekend and aggravated a (self diagnosed) IT band issue from earlier in the year. As a result, I’m here blogging for you all and icing my knee  (with a few – honey, can you grab me the ice pack? honey, would you mind feeding the horses, honey…?) The man has the patience of Job.  So, I’m spending my RICE time wisely and meal planning 🙂 Trying to make these meals easy and low on the labor intensive scale, particularly for the next few days. Anyone have tips/experiences/suggestions for IT band injuries? I’m afraid my running days may be over (that goal of a marathon before I’m 30 is looking less and less likely).
