Never thought I'd ever see the day where I would be sad about this.. Saw the doctor today for recurring hip pain which started four weeks ago, attempted some little runs last week which initially felt okay but the pain and discomfort is now back, and due to me having shallow sockets and hip braces as a baby I was abit worried.
She examined me and thinks there are no major joint problems (hurray!), measured both my leg lengths - as sometimes different leg lengths can cause problems, my right leg was 3cm shorter by her measurements, and she also weighed me (grrr, as I was only 1kg lighter than the last time I got weighed there about 5 months ago).
She has referred me to a physio but that could be a long wait so in the mean time she advised me not to run and stick to low impact activities like swimming, cycling and walking, and watch this space, and to go back if it worsens etc.
Very sad to say after not running for basically four weeks it might be alot longer before I do
Hope everyone elses running is going fabulously this week and onwards!
