hip pain

Recommended Posts

Done 2 days on week 4, pain in hip top of thigh through the day after the session, especially on standing from sitting. Better when walking though. Wonder if just muscular or more serious? Don't want to stop yet.

Congrats on your progress thus far :)

Might be your hip flexors. Try stretching them out before and after your run. If you need a good routine just google it and you will have lots of options.

I'm having the same problem in my right hip. Thought my yoga session would help but it's still painful & I can hardly bend over. I'm at the 6 week mark & got through the knee issue but now have this problem...wondering if I could dial back on the 10k sequence somehow? Is it possible to go back a couple weeks?

I know the feeling, the pain doesn't seem to be muscular, but I want to keep going. I don't want to do any permanent damage.i hope yours improves. I have gone back by pressing the tick and then you can reset that one. I am not moving on with each one until I feel comfortable.keep going!

So true! Better to slow the training down than suffer an injury. In my search for an answer I've narrowed it down to pirifirmis syndrome. I found a vid on YouTube that shows how to relieve it & it worked. Think I'll try to run tomorrow & just walk if it starts flaring again. I'm not trying to win any world records--just be active & I'm certainly feeling better with more energy than before!

I am posting this hoping that it helps someone with a similar problem. I began having hip pain on week 3 in only one side, my right. By day 3, week 3 it was too painful to continue. I was very disappointed with the setback. I did some reading online. I know, not all information found there is accurate but I read something that made sense. It could be that I am not balanced and my hip muscles are not strong enough to support my joint during the repeated impact as I increase my running time. Even after a two week break the pain returned as soon as I tried to jog again. I started going to the gym 3 to 4 times a week working out on the elliptical machines to strengthen my muscles without impact. After 6 weeks of that I am feeling much stronger overall and was able to start jogging again. My hip is still a little "twingy sometimes". It may be something I always have to be mindful of but building strength in my entire body has helped that hip quite a bit. I have resumed the C25k program on week 4, day 1 and did so with no problems. I may make my goal of a September 5K after all.

Oh dear painful again, not sure whether to carry on or not.

Don't give up. Read my post on this topic. I was having pain in just one hip too. I was very discouraged but I'm back on track now. Good luck.

Good job! I have found that a foam roller really works the kinks out of my muscles when they're achy - my hips have started hurting a bit more since I started the 10K portion of the program, but the foam roller does wonders - really helps to knead out the aching muscles (great on the calves too!).

I just restarted the program after being sidelined for three months with hip flexor tendinitis.  The real key for me was seeing a sports medicine specialist.  I got a very accurate diagnosis and then it was off to physical therapy a couple of time a week concentrating on fixing problems that I have literally had for 53 years (since birth).  My birth defect, though you can't see it now, was actually starting a domino effect that had me jogging in bad form.  My hip flexors took the worst of it and, when I built up to 28 straight minutes of jogging, they just couldn't take it anymore.

 

Now I'm armed with better information, advice on correcting my gait and the confidence that I can break through.
