Any suggestions on dealing with ITB, doing the strength and the stretches,
but I still have trouble getting beyond 1 and half hours running.  Any
suggestions would be great!

If you get to the point where it hurts, stop right away, go home, take some
ibuprofen, elevate it and ice it.  The only thing that really got me over a
nagging IT Band was complete rest between Thanksgiving and New Years, with
repeated ibuprofen and icing.  I started back slow after New Years, and ran a
marathon in April.  Good Luck!

Do you have the problem on both legs, or just one side?

Ditto that, Rusty176.  There are a couple of injuries which, in my experience,
could not be "worked through" without interrupting training.

1.) ITB: It would just linger until I rested from running - - this is part of
the beauty of cross training.  Stretch alot and don't sit at your desk for
long periods.

2.) Plantar Fasciitis: This nearly ended my running, for good.

When I recommend rest, I don't mean "do nothing", but an hour-and-a-half run
would have been risky, in my experience.
