So during my warmup walk today, my left shoe felt a bit funny... Like it was rubbing in the wrong place. I figured that I had a wrinkle in my sock and that it would sort itself out. Did one of my usual routes and found breathing and pace better than the last few times, but my left hip started niggling quite badly. I had planned to do half an hour, but at the 25 minute mark I realised I was starting to limp, so I walked home. The source of the problem became apparent when I took my shoes off. I have fitted insoles from a podiatrist, to help with a knee problem. I had got them the wrong way round !
I did some stretches (thanks Oldgirl for the pointers) and it helped, but my hip is really quite stiff and sore for now. (More like muscle pain than anything else I think). Not sure whether I'll go out again before the pain wears off. Hubby has a theory that if I go for a run with my insoles the right way round, then it might iron out the problem, but I'm not so sure. Opinons welcome.
