My experience...you need to stretch before running, do a good 5 minutes brisk walk warm-up, run, good 5 minute cool down, then STRETCH like your life depended on it at the end - my Ortho Sports Doc says at least 10 minutes of stretching at the end! I can email you all my stretches and PT stuff if you want? I need to scan in one page of if, but I have the other page in my email already! Let me know! Love You!xoxo
10:06 mile?! You're a beast! Keep doing what you're doing, girl :)
Sorry about the hip. I sorta kinda pulled mine at Tennis last Thursday. All better now, but it was a weird feeling. At least I think I pulled it. Anyhoo, maybe try some yoga or some stretching? I've been thinking of adding some yoga into the mix anyway to work on flexibility. But since I bombed so much with Jillian's 30 Day Shred, I'm leery of starting a new dvd program. My stupid A.D.D..... /sigh
Have you tried foam rolling your kinks?
Have you foam rolled??? i was having left hip pain about 3 months ago maybe and foam rolled it away and it hasnt happened since (fingers crossed) I also make sure to stretch really well after each run, specifically these old lady hips :) You can Youtube foam rolls and stretches, which is what I did!
I have a hard time taking a rest day ... I just want to eat more, trying to out cardio my calories! I do actually enjoy most of my exercise too (that's when I watch my shows or read my books). I'm not great and stretching/warming up/cooling down because I'm in a constant go, go, go ... I get in so many small workouts all throughout the day, I'm rarely "done" to do my "after" stretching ...
Stretching is something I forget about, too. Or if I actually do stretch, it's like 2 minutes and that's it. It's so important, but I easily overlook it.
You are amazing! I get hip pain after 5k events because I push myself harder than normal I think. Hope your hip feels better soon. You are such an inspiration!
