If you can get your hands on a large foam roller, that does wonders for lengthening the ITB. Massage also works really well, using some soft tissue mobilization techniques to break up the adhesions and loosen the fascia.
Otherwise, just be careful. Pay attention to any twinges in your knee and don't be afraid to take a day off. Keep an eye on your shoes, if the outside edge starts wearing down sooner then the inside edge, you're puttin a huge stress on the ITB.
IF you keep having problems, I would see a Physical therapist. There may be something about your posture that is agrivating the ITB.
Best of luck, RNR girl
