Once again week 8 has caused me problems. Last time it was my Achilles (which stopped me running for 12 weeks) and now I have problem with my left hip which came on during my 3rd run of week 8 - although I did manage to keep going until the end.
Looking on the internet I think it's hip bursitis, with a treatment of ice, rest followed by gradual exercise to strengthen the muscles.
However, according to one specialist on Runners World, he suggests that you can keep running with hip bursitis.
As I'm so close to graduating (once more), maybe I could get through the next three runs dosed up with ibuprofen plus a few packs of frozen peas.
Has anybody else had hip bursitis problems and what did you do? Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
