I've not been able to run for 3 weeks due to aches and pains in ankle, knee and hips (just one side!). My physio says I've got very weak glutes and this is causing my lower limbs to do all the work. Hence the pains. So, I'm doing glute strengthening exercises every day and trying to "fire up" my pesky bottom muscles. Hubby is quite enjoying all the positions I'm getting myself into, what with the foam roller and tennis ball, but we won't go there on this forum.
However, I'm still quite "achey" so I'm thinking maybe it's not the running but something else.
I miss running soooo much. We're moving house next week and I was hoping the running would help with the pressure. I've become grumpy and short tempered which I know is because I haven't got my fix. However, I have developed a closer relationship with wine in the evenings, so it's not all bad!
Seriously, I NEED TO RUN!
Once we move, I'm going to see a podiatrist to get everything sorted once and for all and I'm going to learn how to run properly. If I have to start again from the beginning I will. Baby steps. Watch this space.
