Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
Not treating this thread like a substitute for medical advice, but quick question guys:
My right hip had been sore while running for a couple of weeks - nothing serious, just a mild aching – but over the last few days it`s gotten increasingly painful. I can`t lay on that side in bed without pain and pushing on joint hurts. This afternoon, I`m noticing it when I walk, especially getting up from sitting. Does this sound like bursitis?
I run approx. 60 – 80k a week (vary the distance and also speed from easy to race pace, one day rest weekly). I`m coming off a moderate left ankle injury whereby I`ve been instructed to run in my ankle brace, which I hate doing since it limits my mobility and, thus, alters my gait and has me hitting the ground harder with my right leg. I`m thinking this is the culprit, if I am developing bursitis. I haven`t made any changes to my strength training or any other activity.
