I have finally started week 9. I finished week 8 with a fair amount of left hip pain, which was only around following my runs, walking etc it was hardly noticable. So i looked into it a bit and decided the stretches that i was doing were fairly hit and miss and were not doing the trick, and my hip flexor muscle (a few weeks ago i had never heard of such a thing!) was not being stretched sufficiently to do any good.
So i reduced the length of my last few runs and completely changed my stretches post run....and.....its much better!
I wasnt going to run the 30 mins today, But i was feeling ok, so went for it.
It will be nice to be done, so i can just run without time being an issue. So roll on runs 2 and 3!
Graduate badge...you will be mine!
