I graduated in November and since then have kept to the 3 runs a week, generally managing up to 4.5 km. I've not had any injuries whilst doing this programme - until last weekend when my left hip really started hurting towards the end. It felt OK the next day but I gave it a bit of a rest and didn't go out again until Wednesday. Did my usual 5 min warm up and was OK for 1 km but then had searing pain in left hip and had to immediately stop. Limped slowly home and was in agony for next 36 hours. Has now eased a lot but isn't yet 'better' so am wondering how long I should wait until I try another run?? I really enjoy the running and am really missing it already.
