Hi did week 4 run three a week ago and the pain had been progressively getting worse in my hips. Got advice a from a couple of more experienced people one here (thanks as usual) and took extra rest days. I hadn't been able to walk properly at points in the last ten days and was having to take some heavy duty painkillers just to move my legs.
I stated in previous posts it wasn't like a strain or a pull or anything like that just severe discomfort inside my hip. Anyway I digress, it was getting better then on Friday I was out from work in just my shirt and it started pouring. I decided I've done week 4 surely I can jog 100 yards to the car. Within about 20 seconds the pain was back and worse than ever.
I had to leave it a few days then decided to go for a cycle yesterday. Picked a nice easy flat route of 20 miles but absolutely NO discomfort in my hip apart from one very minor passing twinge (seconds) and have had no pain since.
Beginning to worry this running lark isn't for me. I was enjoying it and finding the program ok apart form the hip pain.
Now I'm pain free again I don't know whether to start again and if so where since I've not run for a week???
