Hi all! Been out of action for a couple of weeks due to pains in my left foot and right hip! I had a sharp pain in my foot every time I put all my weight on it so I made the sensible decision to rest it and hold off on the running for a little while! As for the hip, it's a twinge when I'm standing/sitting in certain positions and seems to be totally random! Both places have been feeling good for about a week now, so I decided to go out this morning for a run (last run was Sat 29th March). The whole time I was running, I was fine (felt good, steady rhythm, good breathing), but when I stopped to do my cool down walk, the pain in my right hip started up again! When I got home I did lots of leg stretches and also some deep lunges to try and stretch the hip muscles - does anyone have any other advice? REALLY don't want to have to sit out any more runs (which is great as I think it must mean I have the bug)!! But obviously don't want to make anything worse either. Could it just be insufficient warming up of those muscles? Any help would be much appreciated
