I have ITBS and am going to physical therapy. We're in agreement that the goal is to get me back on the road as quickly as possible. He's even open to the idea of minimalist running. However - he said minimalist running really is for smaller people.
I am about 20-25 pounds overweight, and during this time that I can't run I'm doing yoga and strength training; I've also reduced my calories. Very hopefully I"ll be running again long before I lose the weight.
So do I lose weight -then- begin the transition or can I work on both objectives at the same time?
