Uh oh, not sure the graduation sprint finish was such a bright idea... Since Sunday night have been suffering with a touch of niggly hip and upper thigh/groin pain, especially when climbing stairs or after sitting at my desk for long periods.
Was due to run today, and I really, really want to, but I'm not going to risk aggravating this further as feels more dodgy than your average ache. Deep heat, ibuprofen, hot baths and rest - have been sensible, want to be back to normal quick! Working away Tues/Weds, so if the hip thing is gone my next run will be Friday. Hope my legs will remember what they need to do Was determined to do the 5k this week as well, but plenty of time and would rather stay injury free.
Seems a funny area to try and stretch and strengthen - any ideas?
Happy running everyone, it's great to see lots and lots of progress from newbies, middleys and grads posting on the forum, well done all! Hope those lurgy ridden troops are feeling better too.
