Hey guys! I’ve not posted an update in a while, but running had been going Absolutely great. Since graduating in July, I was starting to do 1x speed run a week, 1x 5k and 1x long run...max distance so far being 7k.
Everything going great, no issues at all. I always warm up, cool down and stretch post run. Then last week I did my first hill repeat. 4x up and down a hill that I usually incorporate into my usual route. But since that run, my right hip has been very sore. I’ve stopped running for now, but I’m really keen to get started again.
I’m also on a hiking holiday, so don’t want to spoil the hikes, so am happy to take a break if I must. I guess I just want to know if anyone has had similar experiences and can offer any advice. Should I rest, stretch? Ibuprofen? Ice?
I’ve not had a gait analysis yet, so may make this a priority when I get home. I also have scoliosis so wonder if anything to do with my physiology makes me more susceptible to certain aches and pains, so am considering seeing a sports physio.
I’m missing running already and I’m only 2 days behind so am hoping I can be on it soon!!!!
