Week 8 - Pulled Psoas?

Hi - I'm in week 8 of C25K and I think I pulled my psoas muscle in my dance class. I'm supposed to be at the 20 minute run but could only do the 8/5/8.


My lower back/left hip hurts a lot in Pilates. Is it ok to stick with the 8/5/8 until the pain subsides or should I push through to the 20?

    I am not an expert at all..... I had to google what a psoas muscle is!


    However... I would stick at a level that is comfortable until the pain subsides.  I don't think it would be worth it to push too hard.
