Well I'm a bit fed up - I reached Wk 7 and was going well but my right hip became quite sore. Not when running but when I was rotating it - think sitting down and crossing your left foot on to your right knee to tie a shoelace. I thought it might just need stretching out a bit but that made it worse so decided to rest it. I was about to go on holiday for 10 days so thought I would see how it would go. I did do a short run after a few days but wasn't sure if I should rest completely or not so decided to err on the side of caution (I did badly jar that hip a few years ago which resulted in sciatica for a while). Had a lovely holiday in hot sunny Scotland (I kid you not - it was hotter than the continent!) and searched the net on my return for a solution to my hip problem. I've decided to visit the physiotherapist next week (provided by my GP but the physio is on holiday this week) and am hoping it will a case of doing some exercises. I'm not sore when walking but it gets stiff after sitting for a while (eg on a car journey).
I was really pleased to get to Week 7 (and even had the extra puff for a faster last minute) so am a bit down not to be carrying on at the moment. Hope I'm doing the right thing and also hope that the next time I post will be to ask advice about which week to resume on.
I was looking forward to getting that Graduate badge before too long but it will just have to wait!
Nice to be able to post on here as I know other people have had similar problems.
