Hip pain

Mine do too! Just started C25K again for the third time, and I'm just realizing that my hip pain is associated with running. I'm only 23 with no history of bone/muscle issues. I think it may have to do with how we're running, but I'm not sure what the "right way" to run is...

I had the same issue... Tight hips. I found that it was a lack of flexibility in the joint. I highly advise incorporating some yoga and serious stretches for your hips both before and after your run. It really does help improve your workout and you'll feel so much better. Good luck!

Do some research on improving your stride. If there is a good running store near you, check it out. Often times the proper shoe can help you on your way to perfecting your stride and alleviating some discomfort when you are working out. As Kelly said, if your hips are giving your serious pain, see a doctor!

It's worth seeing a physiotherapist. I saw one after continuous weeks of hip pain and confusion after watching YouTube videos. For me, my hip pain is due to tight ITBs which is common for runners. She said it was due to weak glutes and incorrect running form due to my flat feet which I've never had checked before. She's given me muscle release and strengthening exercises which has helped a lot. And I've gone to the podiatrist and we did a trial of how my feet would feel if I was pounding the pavement in the correct form and ohmygoodness it was so good!! Can run for 50+minutes now no pain!!
