Pain in the......HIP?

Boy, do I have sore hips today.

No. Damn. Fun.

I did some reading on 'hip pain' after running, and of course they say it could be this or that, so who knows. I'm experiencing more than just sore muscles, I know this, but I'm no Doctor.  I kind of suspect I have some fascia problem or something though. WONDERFUL! I had plantar fasciitis in the past, now why don't I mess up my hip fascia too?!   ....ugh.....

My plan tonight is to  down some ibuprofen for the possible inflammation and rub some deep cold on my hips and call it a night. I might use my foam roller in the morning if my hips aren't  any better. Deep massage is said to be helpful. Hell, maybe I'll do that before I put the rub on tonight! Fingers crossed these remedies help.  I'm planning on going for a run with my friend on wednesday and then the race is on sunday. I can't have sore freak'in hips people. I need to be in top form. Not hip replacement form!  Any tips from fellow runners out there? I have apparently have not learned the secret of how to avoid hip pain post runs yet (or at least learned anything beyond a pre workout 10min stretch!).

Other than my hip issue (that makes me feel like an 80 year old), it was a pretty quiet day even though it was a work day for me. I managed once again to stay within my points determined as ever not to let my french fry mishap screw me over on the scale.   I'm tempted to take a peek at my own scale tomorrow to see what progress I've made, but I'm scared. We'll see. I'll let ya know ;-)

  1. Sonya, sore and tight hips are the epittome of runners. I swear by yoga. I know you work crazy hours, so check out this link, you can download lots of different yoga sessions for free. They are 20 minutes long.
