(Also posted on C25k) .After hitting my longest run of 12k about a month ago and regularly running 10ks, (including my first 10k event which I loved!) I feel as though I have hit the wall a bit with my running over the last couple of weeks. ☹️ At first I thought it was the weather but now I'm not so sure? I have also started to feel a tightness in my left hip and buttock (only when I run) . Have been rolling and stretching and think it may be my pirimformus but have decided to go and see the very lovely physio who helped me last year when I had a nasty calf tear. Dropped my long run plan for this weekend and had a rest through the week. Ran an ok 5.5k yesterday but still feeling tight in the hip, which left me feeling a little deflated afterwards. Anyway, will make an appointment tomorrow and see what the physio says but feel as though I am going through a bit of a poor patch with my running after being on such a high and feeling such progress. I had hoped to do a 10 mile event in October but now quite glad that I haven't entered yet! Am also trying to refocus on strength and flexibility which maybe I have let slip a bit. Anyone else had similar dips in fitness and what helped? I love my running ❤️🏃🏻 and it doesn't usually feel this hard!! 😮
