sore hip?

I was truly enjoying your program but ran into a little glitch.  I was into day two of the 4th week but some how I managed to hurt my hip.  It hurt so much I could hardly walk.  So I have rested for about a week and a half.  I am feeling better.  So I thought I would get back walking then start back with the program.  Is it best I could back to the 3rd week of the program or will it be alright to just continue from were I stopped at 4th week day 2?  I signed up for a 5K Sept. 30 but don't know if I will make it.  I am 53 years old and have always been relatively active:hiking, biking and lots of walking.  Marybeth

    No matter how active you are, a new sport, or a new wrinkle in one you have enjoyed for years takes some adjustment. You are probably feeling that now. However, to be on the safe side, you should not hold yourself to any time goals or deadlines, signed up or not. The best of us have had to pass 'em by. Instead, think of this recovery time as a gift to go about healing and becoming stronger.

     

    First, evaluate what you can and cannot do, and when or where pains occur. Is pain present at all times, when laying down, when getting up, when standing, driving, sitting, squatting, crossing your legs, climbing stairs? When and where these pains occur can help identify which parts of your anatomy are in use and at the root of your pain.

    Marybeth,

     

    It could be an alignment issue, so maybe check with a good sports PT or chiropractor.  Female athletes are more prone to a variety of pelvic/hip issues, so it is important to get a professional evaluation now to better address any underlying causes.  There is a long list of factors that could be influencing your symptoms. 

     

    Keep the faith and get some solid opinions.  Best wishes.

    Your going to get hurt in this sport for sure but on the flip side you will get different types of aches with being sedintary.  I would suggest having it looked at by a professional but before you go in really educate yourself about where and when it hurts, as well as the anatomy in the area.  It will help the provider make a better treatment plan for you
