Trading one running pain for another... by nikerunner75 at Garmin Connect - Details
Untitled by nikerunner75 at Garmin Connect - Details
So frustrated! Started hurting a little on Tuesday's run, in my right hip down to the side of my knee. I thought maybe it was a combination of running back to back days (since we knew it was going to rain on Wednesday), still recovering from a hilly 10 mile race, and switching out shoes the day before. I got out this morning to run & didn't even make it 2.5 miles! I've been able to run through my ankle pain or at least walk it out some, but this pain wasn't letting up. It felt like my right leg was a tight string that just kept getting tighter & was more intense at the hip and knee. I stopped to stretch at a light pole & tried to walk it out...nothing helped.
It seems to be one thing after another with me & running! Or am I just getting older? Is it just one of those things that comes with the territory of running? I'm hoping it's not going to develop into some major IT band issues. Been trying to do some stretches & foam rolling for it.
Anyone else going through this? Have any suggestions as to what helps?
