Ouch... on the IC again!

After doing a 7k yesterday morning and not really feeling the effects afterwards, I was sat on the living room floor last night when the phone rang. I jumped up to answer it and straight away felt a sharp pain in the top of my leg. I guess it's another hip flexor strain(?)... hopefully a bit of ibuprofen and a few extra days rest should see me back to normal... fingers crossed anyway as I am planning on having my gait analysed on Friday (and buying new shoes).

Yeah don't worry Simon. It will calm down. Neurofen sandwiches and resting up will fix you up good. I always find a stiff vodka martini works wonders too!!

Hopefully it's just a twinge... Really exciting about gait analysis... Hope it goes well...

Thanks! It does feel a bit better today. I've taken ibuprofen a few times and just done my normal walking for the day. Should be fine for Friday... touch and go whether I'll run on Tuesday though.

Glad it's starting to feel better. It won't do any harm to rest up on Tuesday just to be sure.

You could ice it too if it's not to near to areas where you wouldn't want ice...you don't have to do much running for gait analysis, I did mine with shins splints. Hope you feel better and get some super new shoes. Don't forget the shoe police will arrest you if you don't post pics of them...
